Grotesque vs. gargoyle

Over on John’s blog, commenters are raising quite a storm. John wins and the goofball is exposed big time!

Me, lemme remind you that gargoyles are not grotesques, and most of those architectural details many people call gargoyles are grotesques. Gargoyles must deliver water (it’s from the French word for “throat”), yet both often are little statues of varying ugliness.

’Nuff ranting!
