Battle of The Weiner Headline: Post or Daily News

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The timing of Anthony Weiner’s announcement that he was running for mayor might have prevented the New York Post and New York Daily News from punning the hell out of the city yesterday, but today the paper’s did their best to bring it. The only question is which Weiner headline is better?

We do like “spanks” better than “beats,” but FishbowlNY gives the win to the Post because it added “…Then goes limp.” Two puns in six words is strong work.
