HOH’s One-Minute Recess: Gone Missing

Posted June 9, 2011 at 2:48pm

Have you tried to check out the picture of Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)? (You know, that one.) Well, if you do try to see the original picture as uploaded on the Twitter picture-sharing site Yfrog, you will be sorely disappointed. (And if you are that disappointed, make no mistake, we judge you.)

On Wednesday, New York City’s shock-jock duo, Opie and Anthony, had conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart on their program. When Breitbart the Bashful said he would not be sharing the picture of, shall we say, Little Anthony and the Imperials, the two disc jockeys helpfully took their own picture and tweeted it from their phone.

Thanks, guys! Super helpful!

Like everyone else, the team at Roll Call checked out the picture — because we are nothing if not thorough and we hate our eyes — and reported that as of 6 p.m. Wednesday, the picture had 162,893 views on Yfrog. How many as of Thursday afternoon? Uh … no idea, because it is no longer there.

Instead of clicking through to the X-rated picture, the online voyeur in need of a Weiner fix is sent to an advertisement for a Yfrog lunch contest.

So kudos to the folks at Yfrog for making the Weiner work for them!
