DEN’S GOT SOME SECRETS,” checks out a section of the airport’s official site entitled “DEN Files,” before launching into a full explanation of the different myths.   Why have a gargoyle in the airport? “Oh, it’s due to the fact that of the conspiracy,” one tourist mused in the gargoyle video. ” ‘Oh, it’s since of the conspiracy, I’m a little know-it-all!’ ” the animatronic gargoyleshot back. “Will you get back here? I have a concern about this conspiracy.”  When asked about his age, the gargoyle told another traveler he was 243 years old and still works out “all the time.” “I appearance good for my age, don’t I?” he asked. “You should see my squats.”  Some believed the trick was funny, a few had their deals with buried in phones and missed it entirely, while others simply seemed baffled.  “You know, you can really put the phone down and have a discussion with me,” he quipped at a young lady holding up her phone. “But, ‘no, I’m a millennial, I’ve got to post it, I’ve got to snap-face it and Twitter-book it,” he joked.    Read or Share this story: https://www.
