The New Yorker continues to grab attention with its cover art, this time with one of the more original Weiners we've seen. (Um, maybe that wasn't the best phrasing...) The artist who painted the cover, John Cuneo, tells the magazine that he came up with the idea through "free association" that began with the Empire State Building for reasons he doesn't explain. (Hey, I suppose that's why they call it free association!) Still, I can't imagine the disgraced-congressman-turned-disgrace-mayoral-candidate is that upset about a cover that uses a 102-story skyscraper as a stand-in for his junk.
