Don't call your friends tikbalang, it isn't nice.

Possibly the greatest description of a cryptozological monster ever:
"Tikbalangs are said to be transformations of aborted fetuses that have been sent back to Earth from limbo, which is nice."

This stood out for me because a vendor in Shattrath (a World of Warcraft town, for those of you not in the know) sells amulets that drive away Tikbalangs. I took it one step further and called a coworker a tikbalang, not being aware it was a giant, ugly ogre-horse thing. He laughed and patted me on the head, said he was from the Phillipines where those things originated, and he was not that ugly. God bless you for your good sense of humor, Fred.

I've linked the article. It's about gay bigfoot and a few other totally crazy crytozological critters out in the world. There's some 'coarse language' for folks to be aware of.
