Rhyming Schlong with Wrong

6.8.2011

By Aaron Hicklin

Hell, it doesn't take long for a scandal to become a musical parody these days. Over at McSweeney's the humorist Ben Greenman has put Weiner's decline and fall into rhyming couplets, with supporting roles for Larry Craig, Eliot Spitzer, Jim McGreevey, Mark Sanford, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Example:

ANTHONY WEINER
I have been struggling as of late
Deciding if it's right or wrong
To use these social network sites
To send a picture of your schlong.

[His TINY CONSCIENCE speaks up.]

ANTHONY WEINER'S TINY CONSCIENCE
What the hell?
Are you kidding, man?
That's your question?
That's your plan?

ANTHONY WEINER
Well, not even the schlong exposed!
But inside boxer briefs and posed
To look much larger than it is
So gasping, they'll say "Is that his?"
