An errant Twit-pic of his bulging underwear landed Rep. Anthony Weiner in a doozy of a political scandal. Thus when the New York congressman finally copped up to his sexting in a nearly hour-long press conference on Monday, Twitter exploded with quips, dick jokes and expressions of shock from around the Internet.
TheWrap has helpfully compiled the best of the bunch.
