CHRIS:  Let’s start in our adopted home state.  Did you know the origin of the name California? The name comes from a 16th Century Spanish romance novel.  The story is set on a beautiful paradise island, named California.  It is ruled over by women.  Unfortunately for my species, any male that accidentally found themselves on the island were killed and fed to these horrible half-lion/half-eagle creatures called griffins.

Now to the state where we were born and raised. For over 250 years, the legend of the Jersey Devil has persisted throughout NEW JERSEY.  The most common story told about the origin of the state cryptid is that a Mrs. Leeds, a resident of Estellville (near Atlantic City), freaked out when she found out she was pregnant for the 13th time.  I wonder why.  In disgust, she wailed, “Let it be the devil!”  And lo and behold, she got her wish!  She gave birth to a baby devil, which, upon arriving on Earth, screeched, unfolded its wings, and flew out the window - into an adjacent swamp.
