Woman epically trolls neighborhood’s ‘Karen’ who complained that her gargoyle isn’t ‘appropriate’ for Christmas.
The festive season is here, and we’re sure all of you must be busy planning for your celebrations.
Whatever gets you into the festive spirit—decorating a Christmas tree, buying gifts, visiting your family members, or partying with your friends—we hope you’re not getting into other people’s nerves to pet your weak ego and feel superior.
Well, it a pity, however, that this particular Karen has started the holiday doing precisely that. It’s not just a one-time time. She has done it a couple of times, annoying her neighbors.
For instance, when she spotted a gargoyle on her neighbor’s porch, she left a nasty note demanding her neighbor—Vicki Matter—to take it down. ‘It’s not very festive,’ she argued.
Perhaps Karen wouldn’t have left the note if she knew how all of it would play out because her attempt backfired big time.
Instead of satisfying Karen’s ego, Vicki decided to up her game even more, adding decorations and increasing the degree of festiveness.
Thus, a hilarious feud ensued, leaving no chance for the Karen to win.
The neighbor then took to social media to roast the Karen.
Scroll down to catch up with the fun.
The only thing more impressive than the determination of this Karen to make a fool of herself is the history of the gargoyle.
Gargoyles are carvings of grotesque figures, faces, or creatures perching along the roofs and battlements of buildings. They can also project from roof gutters.
These figures are one of the most recognizable characteristics of Gothic architecture.
The term gargoyle is derived from ‘gorge,’ a French word for throat. This is because a gargoyle has a hollow neck, attached at one side to the building’s gutter system.
The precise purpose of gargoyles was to act as a spout. They conveyed water from the upper part of a building or roof gutter and away from the side of walls or foundations.
Therefore, they helped to prevent water from causing damage to masonry and mortar.
The gargoyle would have a trough carved into its back, which rainwater would run and exit through the large open mouth. And to project the water as far away from the building as possible, they were horizontally-oriented.
In addition to the practical function of projecting water away from a building, gargoyles also symbolized ‘guardianship.’
People believed the figures could ward off evil spirits. Their open mouths were symbolic of them devouring evils.
And the more hideous their appearances were, the better these figures would scare off all sorts of dark creatures.
Some tales also claim gargoyles would come to life at night to protector while one is asleep and vulnerable.
Other stories say these figures also had wings and could fly around the whole area. But as the sun rises, they would return to the walls and resume their posture.
