Becoming a congressman and then accidentally tweeting your penis is a hell of a way to get a job at Hustler, but like a pair of pants, Anthony Weiner pulled it off.
That’s right, it’s been a few weeks now, but we’ve still got a few wiener jokes left to squeeze out, and we better release them while we can because you’re gonna be hard up for ‘em later.
Larry Flynt, the Stephen Hawking of the porn world, has offered Weiner a job at his company, writing him a letter discussing his resignation:
“After having learned of your sudden and compelled resignation from your Congressional post, I would like to make you an offer of employment at Flynt Management Group, LLC in our internet group.”
Bad idea. I know Anthony Weiner’s penis may be right up Hustler’s alley (along with the allies of a legion of porn stars), but obviously he isn’t the most tech savvy person.
“This offer is not made in jest,” Flynt continues in the letter. He adds that he is “willing to pay twenty percent more than your former Congressional salary, ensuring that your medical benefits would be equal to what you were previously receiving.”
Well, yeah, the health insurance thing shouldn’t be an issue. This man has the body of a Greek God. Unfortunately, he has the face of Howdy Doody.
Flynt has been a long time proponent of free speech.
He added, “I feel that your unfortunate resignation is a prime example of unfounded political pressure and the hypocrisy that has invaded democracy in Washington D.C." He concludes, "I hope you will sincerely consider this offer, and I look forward to your response."
How long before Weiner tries to email Flynt back but accidentally posts it as a comment on his Facebook Wall?
