Green Room

Unfortunate skyline imagery of the day

posted at 10:15 am on April 24, 2013 by

Look at it this way: The point of a logo is to make it easier for the viewer to identify its sponsor. What better choice for Anthony Weiner than something pointed upward jutting out into your line of view?

Somebody ought to get a rise out of that.

If he’s comparing himself to the Empire State Building………..

*chortle*

Bitter Clinger on April 24, 2013 at 10:20 AM

Weiner is a hard man to figure.

Bitter Clinger on April 24, 2013 at 10:21 AM

Lotsa hidden meaning there. Maybe Weiner is just a phallusophical kinda guy!

Shy Guy on April 24, 2013 at 10:23 AM

So the images say…

Bring me your fertile gardens,
For the past is water under the bridge.
You need a strong, erect man
To conquer the world
And enter through your arch.

This has to be an inside joke by the publishing company.

Nethicus on April 24, 2013 at 10:24 AM

Good sense of humor.

Hill60 on April 24, 2013 at 10:25 AM

Hmmmmmm,

The Key and The Gate Keeper,from the movie Ghost Busters,
and filmed in NY,for some inexplicable reason,comes to mind!!

canopfor on April 24, 2013 at 10:34 AM

Nice to see that Anthony, in the midst of all of this, is keeping his head erect.

rbj on April 24, 2013 at 10:38 AM

Good to see that Tiny’s rising to the challenge and engorged with ideas, designed to arouse New Yorkers from their slumber.

KingGold on April 24, 2013 at 10:43 AM

And even better, it’s powered by “UberFlip” — whatever that is…

unclesmrgol on April 24, 2013 at 10:45 AM

Middle class?????

You have to be rich to live in NYC these days. Or, on welfare and willing to live in a gang infested slum.

Blake on April 24, 2013 at 10:45 AM

They really can’t be that unaware, can they?

nobar on April 24, 2013 at 10:50 AM

What a weiner.

Sorry, it’s all I got.

Youngs98 on April 24, 2013 at 10:53 AM

It’s hard to erect a new public image.

TexasDan on April 24, 2013 at 10:57 AM

Dude’s logo got hacked.

Ronnie on April 24, 2013 at 11:00 AM

How about a subway train?

yongoro on April 24, 2013 at 11:08 AM

To conquer the world
And enter through your arch.

Awesome. I bow to your genius.

SteveThomas on April 24, 2013 at 11:09 AM

@Youngs98: My doctor says it’s okay to skip a day when that happens.

Seth Halpern on April 24, 2013 at 11:10 AM

What? No cigar?

krome on April 24, 2013 at 11:29 AM

This Weiner guy has a fascination with the Phallus, doesn’t he?

portlandon on April 24, 2013 at 11:49 AM

Face it, Weiner is a d**k.

in_awe on April 24, 2013 at 11:54 AM

Certitude is strong with this one.

BobMbx on April 24, 2013 at 12:07 PM

What’s the big deal. Don’t be so hardon him.

keep the change on April 24, 2013 at 12:17 PM

Ha! I was looking at the pillar in the photo collage thinking that was the upright symbol, then I saw the Empire weiner. Some body is sabotaging him or are captive slaves of his UNITary vision.

BL@KBIRD on April 24, 2013 at 12:17 PM

The tall statue in the middle … kinda makes it look like the collage is flipping the bird to the viewer, no?

deepdiver on April 24, 2013 at 12:21 PM

And I just have to point out: if he’s using the word like he seems to be intending to use it, then he misspelled it.

It would be “Capitol” not “Capital.” You’d think somebody who spent a lot of time at the state capitol would be able to figure it out.

Professor Blather on April 24, 2013 at 12:30 PM

Humas going to have some stories of hard times for the Caliphs grand children. 1001 nights with Weiner. AliAnthony and The forty pictures of his unit, The Jewish voyage of Sin Bad the self voyeur.

BL@KBIRD on April 24, 2013 at 12:34 PM

BOIOIOIOINNNNGGG!

Ward Cleaver on April 24, 2013 at 12:38 PM

TexasDan on April 24, 2013 at 10:57 AM

Glad you didn’t omit the letter “l” in the word “public”!

DOOF on April 24, 2013 at 12:40 PM

Democratic slogans…

Old & Busted:

‘Vote with your lady parts.’

New Hotness:

‘Vote with your phallic parts.’

Resist We Much on April 24, 2013 at 12:45 PM

What a bone-headed thing to do!

ITguy on April 24, 2013 at 12:54 PM

Professor Blather on April 24, 2013 at 12:30 PM

No, he got it right. “Capitol” refers to the building itself.

Bitter Clinger on April 24, 2013 at 12:56 PM

I’m kind of surprised he couldn’t come up with 5 more reasons…

Mr. Bingley on April 24, 2013 at 1:59 PM

i don’t see what’s so terrible about this. this is one of those times where i wouldn’t have noticed anything strange if other people hadn’t pointed it out. it really does not look unusual at all. if any other person other than weiner had this logo, no one would say anything.

i don’t normally look at pictures of tall buildings and think about male genitals, but i guess you all like to think about that…

Sachiko on April 24, 2013 at 2:07 PM

Heh. A few days ago at an antique store I spotted a children’s book titled “The man who walked between the towers”, and somewhat to my surprise the guy and his story were totally true.

MelonCollie on April 24, 2013 at 2:59 PM

Capital of the Middle Class?

As opposed to the Lowercase of the Middle Class?

Shump on April 24, 2013 at 3:30 PM

Weiner’s going to be hard to beat. He seems to have a grip on his situation and is playing the hand he dealt himself. The hairy hand of a man who knows he’s losing his grip on the thing most important to him.

DanMan on April 24, 2013 at 4:22 PM

Ha, ha, ha. Gratuitous yet unintentional use of phallic symbols — and the wrong usage of capital. Dumb and dumber. He’ll get lots of democrat votes.

Rational Thought on April 24, 2013 at 5:12 PM

And in discussing his past with Twitter, Weiner today said — I kid you not — “I’m not going to let that tool go unused.”

Rational Thought on April 24, 2013 at 5:17 PM

Mister Mojo Risin’ :)

The Evil Doctor K on April 24, 2013 at 7:19 PM

Sachiko on April 24, 2013 at 2:07 PM

Well, I guess you’re not in advertising. They think it works.

S. D. on April 24, 2013 at 7:27 PM

I challenge anyone to scan through the comments before this one and not chuckle several times…

Marcola on April 25, 2013 at 1:44 AM

Speaking frankly, I never sausage a magnificent erection as that building.

Drained Brain on April 25, 2013 at 11:28 AM

Since when can the “Middle Class” even afford to live near New York city?

Neo on April 25, 2013 at 12:08 PM

Middle class?????

Blake on April 24, 2013 at 10:45 AM

Not entirely true: There are still a few outposts of reasonably affordable places to live in New York…however, you have to remember: when most people from outside NYC talk about living in “the City” they usually mean Manhattan…

But if you’re from the city, to live in the affordable areas, it’ll be areas that are in the outer boroughs…some aren’t THAT bad, but more than a few are damn near “No-Go” zones.

BlaxPac on April 26, 2013 at 12:34 AM

Anthony Weiner thinks every marble column, even the one in Columbus Circle, is a monument to his monumental penis.

J Baustian on April 26, 2013 at 1:58 AM

This is a cheap-shot against a stand-up guy.

virgo on April 26, 2013 at 2:35 AM

Sometimes a gigantic phallic symbol is just a gigantic phallic symbol.
