- — Finding one of the five talking gargoyles.[src]
The Comedic Female Gargoyle was one of the talking gargoyles in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was located on a stairwell on the third floor of the castle, just outside the Defence Against the Dark Arts Classroom. It loved to tell jokes to anyone who would listen. By the 1996–1997 school year, the gargoyle had been removed from this area of the castle.
During the 1995–1996 school year, Professor Binns assigned his fifth year students the task of listing five talking gargoyles as a homework assignment. Harry Potter located the gargoyles as a favour to Dean Thomas so that he could attend the first meeting of Dumbledore's Army in the Room of Requirement.
