Sphinx

The Sphinx is an ancient Egyptian beast that has the body of a lion and the face of a beautiful woman. The Sphinx used to sit on the road to Thebes, a Greek city, and pose riddles to travellers wanting to pass. If you could guess the answer to her riddle you could continue by unharmed, get it wrong, however, and she would devour you. My Sphinx has gotten bored with riddles after asking them for thousands upon thousands of years and instead now tries to tell terrible knock-knock jokes.
