1 a : a spout in the form of a grotesque human or animal figure projecting from a roof gutter to throw rainwater clear of a building b : a grotesquely carved figure 2 : a person with an ugly face — gar-goyled \-,gόild\ adj

I have commenced a great and important task: photographing and cataloguing the gargoyles that adorn the Quadrangle at my current school, The University of Pennsylvania. So far I am pleased to report that I am about halfway through the first side of the exterior.
