It's an idea as old as business itself: capitalize on something newsworthy to make a quick buck.
So it's not all that surprising to see this global business trend playing out during Weinergate, the ever-expanding scandal involving New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, a certain photo on Twitter, and a mysterious bulge.
According to the New York Daily News, a sausage joint in Brooklyn is now selling "Anthony's Weiners," two beef hot dogs on two slices of French bread brushed with olive oil.
The cost: six bucks.
"We talked about serving the special on a bed of underwear but we didn't know what the reaction would be to that," co-owner Alex Darsey told the Daily News. "The joke kind of told itself."
Meanwhile, there seems to be no let-up to the Weinergate scandal.
Conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart today posted more compromising photos he claims are of the Congressman, including these topless shots.
