New York Congressman Anthony Weiner resigned today in a raucous appearance that featured a heckler asking if his dick was seven inches. Because up to now, of course, this story has been too serious.

The Twitter victim apologized for his mistakes and for causing a distraction, but he offered no apologies to comedy writers or bloggers who discovered his last name is a synonym for penis, and it was his penis that got him into trouble.

Our past in-depth investigative work on this story: 10 Politician Pictures Sexier than Anthony Weiner's; Eight Unfortunate Movie Dongs and one of his playmates was from Beaumont.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, 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 Houston with no paywalls.
