Faux Mayor Mike Update: Our Favorite Civic Leader Continues His Reign

Since we last left Faux Mayor Mike, his still criminally underfollowed Twitter has more than tripled its constituency. Faux Mike himself has continued to rampage around Dallas' favorite Internet haunts as well, dropping f-bombs, extolling the virtues of pizza and decrying all the "jihadist anti-toll road goofballs."

Amid the profanity and absurdist humor, Mayor Mike has also found the time to start a Facebook page and a website. In addition to the Continental Bridge Death Ray you've already seen, this whole post was primarily an excuse to embed the following tweet, which is just the best:
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
