Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, the president of Argentina, has adopted a 13-year-old Jewish boy, Yair Tawil, to stop him from becoming a werewolf.

That probably sounds super crazy, until you learn that according to Argentinean folklore, a family's seventh son becomes "el lobison" after his thirteenth birthday. This werewolf-like monster feasts on unbaptized babies, feces, and the flesh of the dead. Then it sounds like a charming, folksy amount of crazy.
