Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Hadn't really thought much about Jenny the Elephant or her myriad supporters till recently -- when Spike joined Dallas Zoo officials last week for a sneak peek at the Giants of the Savanna habitat, which prompted Jenny's friends to once more raise their collective trunks in support of her freedom, freedom, freedom! Anyway.

I know Jenny's BFF Lily Tomlin doesn't celebrate a birthday till September 1, but look what I found for sale at a deep discount whilst searching for something entirely unrelated (the Internet is mysterious!): ORIGINAL PAINTING FROM JENNY THE ELEPHANT "DALLAS ZOO." Not as complex as Pugmaliny, but also not as redundant as her imitators.

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.
