Chopracubra (noun, also spelled chopracabra): a semi-mythical beast which haunts the science world with its meaningless sayings and misuse of science terms. It is said to be most active in the late afternoons where it can be found on daytime TV talk shows pretending to know stuff it could not possibly know. It is said to have a distinctive call, which consists of vocalizations like "quantum", "spiritual", and "awareness".

Literally, "chopracubra" (chopra-cubra) means "woo blower". Scientists debate whether the Chopracubra actually exists, or is simply a manifestation of desires in the quantum-entangled chi of universal Karma Dharma woodely doo.
