Trapped By Chupacabras
Steve needs your help. He's trapped in a cabin in northern Minnesota as Chupacabras circle around outside. His only way to communicate with the outside world is via a free blogging service (for some reason email doesn't work on his computer). This is reminiscent of the Trapped by Zombies weblog, except that this is much more of an amateur effort. But you've got to give the guy credit for trying.

It's awful cold for any creatures to be trapping a guy in a cabin in Minnesota. If anyone was trapping this guy it would have to be bigfoot. He's got the hair for it.

And here I always thought that Chupacabras were native to Mexico...

Why are they trapping him inside anyway? Is he part goat?

Maybe this guy is a satyr.

Well, his site seems to be gone, now.

Good grief. The site is down already?

I get a message that "We are sorry, this site not unavailable". Doesn't that mean that the site is available.

I went to the site and the service that the guy uses said it was frozen.

Nice catch, Alex. Caught by a double-negative technicality.

Hmmmm This gives me an idea for my own blog. "Trapped in my house on the plains by a bunch of rolling-rabid tumbleweeds" cheese

How about, trapped by a swarm of double negatives?

Much scarier than chupacabras.

That double negative is truly horrendous. I am actually so offended by it I sent a letter to

Someone should make one of those sorts of first-person-horror-blogs from the viewpoint of Jeff Gannon called "Trapped by Bloggers"... or has the moment passed?

I like how they still want to do business after admitting the site is screwed up, sign up with us!
