Even Weiner's Alleged Sexting Partner Loves Anthony Weiner Jokes
Who doesn't love a good Weiner joke? They're simple, yet effective, and since Tuesday--the day New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner publicly confessed that "some" of the explicit photos and chat logs unearthed by TheDirty.com were legitimate--comedians (and people who just think they are comedians) have been going nuts with the dick jokes.
Last night, Comedy Central hosts Stephen Colbert and John Oliver had a good old-fashioned Weinie roast, adding several new jokes to the Weiner canon.
Luckily for them--and us--these jokes a) have universal appeal and b) don't ever seem to get old. Case in point: Way back in 2011, during Weinergate I, the young woman embroiled in the latest scandal retweeted a few jokes of her own.
Here are the ones that Sydney Leathers, the young political activist identified as Weiner's alleged sexting partner, retweeted using her Twitter handle @sydneyelaineXO, and preserved for posterity by a social media research firm.
