There's yet another deleted scene from Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan making the YouTube rounds, and this one claims to be from the "Denton County Animal Shelter." Only, there's no such thing. That's what they'll tell you when you call Denton Animal Control--and they will tell you that with the exasperation of people who've clearly had to explain more than once that, uh, there is no such thing as the Denton County Animal Shelter.

"We have no idea where that's at," says the guy at animal control Unfair Park talked to yesterday evening. "It says Denton County, but that's not our shelter. Our shelter isn't even called Denton County Animal Shelter. We're the City of Denton Animal Shelter. That lady doesn't work here."

No word on whether they found the clip funny over at the City of Denton Animal Shelter; God knows they didn't find the phone call from us terribly amusing. Us, we found the clip absolutely hysterical--even the 32nd time we watched it. Something about, "Jews are Jesus' children." You watch now. Great success. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
