Photo Gallery quote [In architecture, a gargoyle is a carved stone grotesque with a spout designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building (...) Reproductions of statues representing gargoyle-like creatures, available in some retail stores, although sometimes functional, are more often than not grotesques modeled after famous gargoyles].

    this particular gargoyle is on the cathedral in Freiburg-am-Breisgau in Germany.

    It is famous in architectural trade circles as it represents the ultimate revenge of the architect/master-builder against the bishop who commissioned the church but the refused to pay the pre-agreed fee.

    Instead of spitting the water, it comes out of its ass - aimed at the bishop's residence!
