Crain’s New York Resorts to ‘Weiner Tip Jar’

There’s a funny item in today’s print edition of Crain’s New York Business. Editor Glenn Coleman explains that because the Anthony Weiner puns started to get out of hand (pun intended) in the newsroom, an age-old solution was instituted:

If someone uttered a Weiner pun, much less proposed writing it in a story or headline, they had to deposit 25 cents into what reporters immediately dubbed the “Weiner tip jar.”

“You know the word ‘tip’ could be considered a pun,” someone blithely noted. Quarter for the tip jar, several staffers sing-sung. “This is nuts.” ‘Nother quarter for the tip jar. We were at $2 lickety, um, $2.25 lickety-split.

By late last Friday, Coleman says the total was up to a surprisingly low $6.50. Still good for a couple of dork-namesakes in a bun. And extra points to Coleman for ending the online version of his item with a link to this Seinfeld clip.
