Meet Dallas Voice’s new junior mascot, Henry


A lot of people would probably recognize Joey, the mini-chihuahua carted around by our distribution manager, Linda Depriter, when she makes her rounds. Joey has long been our unofficial mascot here at Dallas Voice — he’s even appeared a lot in the Scene section.

Well, time for a new face to get used to: Joey’s new adoptive sibling, Henry, a placid, Buster Keaton-ish chihuahua mix who was abandoned by some turdling at the ilume, where management entrusted his 14-week-old self to the responsible, loving Linda. Joey, of course, is Margo Channing to Henry’s Eve Harrington (although he’s so young, his testes haven’t even dropped yet), so there’s some tension. But who can resist that face?

Welcome aboard, Henry. We already love you.

Finally, a cute funny gay Superbowl ad

Thank you, FritoLay, for finally airing a gay Superbowl Doritos ad that is not homophobic, but rather cute and funny.

Maybe companies are starting to get the message that homophobic advertising isn’t good for their bottom line, or their reputation?

NOTE FROM JOHN: I’m not so sure I’m happy with the flaming stereotype depicted in the ad. Curious about your thoughts?
