stick with the beasts we got plz #2: the CATOBLEPAS

Body of a buffalo, head of a hog, gaze and/or breath deadly, weeps constantly: Pliny the Elder said it wz sluggish, its head so heavy it cannot lift it from the ground. Desperate explanationists say he wz thinkin of the GNU (“spelt g-n-u”).

i. except hey! the gnu CAN lift its head and does NOT kill by lookin or breathin, ppl!
ii. i can always remember its characteristics, never its name (mnemonic hint to self: Cat O’Bleep-Ass)

conclusion: mythologically functionless, except of course to explore the functionlessness of mythology
