The Best Anthony Weiner Headlines: Mayoral Edition

Posted By on Thu, Apr 11, 2013 at 12:10 PM

When your name is Weiner and you get caught in a sex scandal, well, the fine headline writers across this great nation will do what they do. Some of my favorites from 2011: "Weiner's Pickle" and "Weiner: I'll Stick It Out." Now that the former congressman has expressed an interest in running for the mayoralty of New York City, the press is at it again. I mean, if you do this sort of thing for a living, your immediate thought is "Weiner Enters!," right? And then you get cleverer from there, as evidenced by these news outlets.

Anthony Weiner New York Post headline mayor
The Post obviously wins this one—not for the headline, which is funny, but for the subhed. Erect, hahahaha. Hahahaha.

Anthony Weiner New York Times headline mayor
Even the New York Times is in on this shit. Weiner enters. Classic.

Sometimes you just want someone to make all the jokes, which is why we have people like Stephen Colbert—to say words like "balls" that the lamestream media is too scared to say.

Anthony Weiner Washington Post headline mayor
Washington Post! Ew!

Anthony Weiner Washington Post headline mayor
Heh heh. Pipe.
