Maybe you saw Janet St. James's story last Thursday on WFAA-Channel 8, when she visited that Tarrant-Parker Counties bordertown known as Azle to find out what-the-what was up with that "Hispanics Keep Out" sign. The folks over at Guanabee followed up with a weekend item, including a video you'll find after the jump. Alas, the sign, which had been up for months, has since been taken down.
But Cindy Casares did manage to catch up with the owner of the house -- "Mike," just "Mike" -- who she found sitting in his car in his driveway fondling a Styrofoam container of nachos. They spoke for an hour. Gawker'er Richard Lawson, however, highlights the most interesting part of the interview: "There was some dark, interesting story being hinted at with the garbled urinal anecdote, but alas, it's receded back into the brush." Nonetheless, it will haunt your dreams.
