WATCH: Gargoyle awakens for DIA’s 24th anniversary, startling and amusing passersby
If the blue, fiery-eyed demon Bronco statue just outside of Denver International Airport wasn’t enough to unnerve passengers streaming down the airport’s concourse, a talkative gargoyle may do the trick.
“Wha’. Ah. Oh. Damn!” a woman replies as she backs away from a gargoyle that had just come to life and addressed her.
“That’s a little too close for comfort, lady,” the gargoyle statue had just told her as its lips started moving.
Apparently able to see her startled reaction, the gargoyle responded in kind: “What, you’ve never seen a talking gargoyle before. Welcome to Illuminati Headquarters … I mean, Denver International Airport.”
The gargoyle’s sudden appearance on a pedestal in DIA’s concourse was one surprising feature commemorating the airport’s anniversary.
On our 24th bday, DEN not only got wiser, we also got a little weirder. Our gargoyle friend is giving travelers his 2 cents, & surprising them with smiles & plenty of laughs. Who knows, maybe we’ll see our friend again. #DENFiles #conspiracy #denver #gargoyle #illuminati pic.twitter.com/TVuCuR8Pfu

Tire chains are your friend, especially if Interstate 70 is snowy and slick and you’re a trucker trying to make a deadline.
