Gargoyle keeps tree dry!

On my walk through the neighborhood today I noticed this gargoyle in a tree.


I pointed it out to the tall person and he told me that a gargoyle is a carved stone grotesque, often made of granite, with a spout designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building thereby preventing rainwater from running down walls.

Hmm. I suppose it was only a matter of time before trees discovered the benefits of gargoyles.
