ATTN: Harry Potter/D&D Fans Everywhere!

funny word of the day: gargoyle

It's not only a funny word but a very funny looking creature.

The term originates from the French gargouille, originally "throat" or "gullet";[1] cf. Latin gurgulio, gula, and similar words derived from the root gar, "to swallow", which represented the gurgling sound of water (e.g., Spanish garganta, "throat"; Spanish gárgola, "gargoyle").

Whatever. I hope I'm not offending Harry Potter and Dungeons & Dragons fans who are probably like gargoyles. But even they have to admit it's a funny word!
