Who out there has heard of this legend, about a Handsome Gentleman who danced the night away with all the girls,bought drinks for all,tipped all the waiters wheather they served him or not.No,it's not the MOST INTRESTING MAN IN THE WORLD.As the night wore down,everyone was dancing the last dance,suddenly,,the scent of sulfer consumed the club.
.Everyone witnessed the Gentleman, as he was walking out,that he had a peculiar
sounding step.It was that of a claw and hoof.As he made it to the doorway,he disappeared into the night
leaving the stench that only one thing that could leave such a foul oder..Can you guess who?

I remember hearing the story in the 80s a different way. The version I heard had a very pretty woman as its central character. In this version, a beauitiful woman with a long white dress glides right in, waltzes with various admirers and turns down many suitors. At the end of the evening as the club's lights were lit, she takes an inebriated young man home. Upon leaving the dim lit club, some it's patrons noted she had a claw foot as her dress swayed with each step. People were speechless and she quickly whisked her victim away.

If someone was good-looking & a good person, would it really matter if they had a weird-looking foot or not?

You're totally right; demons need love too.

Since when is a weird-looking foot an indication of a demon? I'm so confused here.

The claw foot shouldn't be your only confusion. Aren't you going to ask about the Camoroncito or what the word even means? How about the folkloric legend that it represents?

To answer your question, it's fairly obvious but the legend alludes to the devil disguised as a person.
