Happy Second Birthday to My Failed Anthony Weiner Tumblr!

I got an e-mail from Tumblr today:

I am Anthony Weiner turned 2 today!
We hope it was a great year, and we look forward to sharing many more!

I wrote about this a couple years ago, but just in case you missed it:

My Failed “I am Anthony Weiner” Project. What I Learned about Social Movements.

Basically, I tried to start a “I Am Bradley Manning” Tumblr, expect for Anthony Weiner and with crotch shots: http://iamanthonyweiner.tumblr.com/

I thought there was a chance it might blow up. There was another crotch pics for Weiner website that pretty much copied me.

Both websites turned out to be epic failures.

I was thinking about opening it up again since Weiner recently came back to life with a bid for mayor of New York City. But now I feel like it’s too late. I made the Tumblr before the drama in which he came out as a liar.

If you’re a couple years behind on the Weiner news, Wikipedia has your back:

I don’t feel like Anthony Weiner has a huge shot right now anyway. He probably could have survived the dick pic scandal on pride alone if only he hadn’t freaked out and and then lied about being hacked. So RIP, “I am Anthony Weiner” Tumblr. You had potential, just like Anthony Weiner himself.

Full disclosure:

I am a registered NYC voter now. (I was an NJ resident before. But now am a Brooklynite.) I am actually voting for Christine Quinn, but for reasons other than dick pics.

    Is it unfair to say that Weiner made a dick of himself because he was lying, or is it just a bad pun?

      He was already a dick. But by lying, he became a dick in hot water. So he prematurely shriveled before his career could climax. And… I need to stop.

        No need. If you stop, the post lacks the opportunity to turn into a post like your Amy Winehouse post from way back when. That was entertaining.
