DENVER -- As if travelers weren't already freaked out by a 32-foot tall blue stallion with fiery eyes, now a towering statue of the Egyptian god of the dead is welcoming fliers at Denver International Airport.

Workers erected a 26-foot tall, seven-ton replica of Anubis, the jackal-headed god of the dead, on Wednesday. The blue and gold statue gazes into the main terminal to promote the King Tut exhibit that opens June 26 at the Denver Art Museum.

Anubis stands not far from the rearing blue "Mustang," an often derided artwork branded "Bluecifer," "Satan's Steed" and "Blue Devil Horse" by critics.

Now the Internet is abuzz with talk about Anubis, who, as the ancient "Lord of the Underworld" and the "god of mummification," ushered the dead on their final journey.

"Why would they place a statue of a god associated with death outside of an airport? Especially one I'm going to in two months?" a puzzled traveler wondered on tvtropes.org.

No good can come of this. Bluecifer has already killed it's creator. I imagine the Egyptian God of the Dead has even greater ambitions. :eek:

A statue of the Egyptian God of the dead is not exactly going to help calm the fears of jittery air passengers.

Oh! Around here, DIA means Defense Intelligence Agency. Had me confused for a moment.

THAT was the omen of your future. I see.............. a new coach in your near future, possibly GM also.

Why? You think they can play worse than last season?

Tebow... whether you like him, or you don't like him, learn to love him.
