'It's Ridiculous, and It Could Make Her Angrier'

Wait a minute. I thought Anthony Weiner was in rehab? What's he doing buying cheap flowers for his wife at a bodega?
Anthony Weiner thinks 23 bucks' worth of bodega blossoms will make love bloom again for his humiliated wife.

The disgraced former congressman was spotted outside his Queens home yesterday toting a bouquet of cheap flowers for Huma Abedin, his pregnant spouse who endured weeks of lurid revelations about her husband's sexting. He spent a whopping $22.97 on them at a bodega, according to the iPad publication The Daily.

But the gesture won't work, experts told The Post.

"It's ridiculous, and it could make her angrier," said Elayne Rapping, a professor of American Studies at SUNY Buffalo. "He knows there are photographers and reporters outside of his house. He could have easily called up a florist and had flowers delivered to her -- this seems to be more of a gesture for the press than for her. A way of him saying, 'I'm being a good husband.' "

A clerk at the ritzy Madison Avenue Florists identified Weiner's peace offering as orange roses, white carnations and blue agapanthuses -- and added that they're a lame way to say, "I'm sorry."

"It's ill-conceived," the clerk said. "Carnations are not really popular among women these days -- and orange roses? He should have stuck to red."

First of all, what the hell are cheap flowers? Second of all, his money would have been better spent if he bought her an inflatable sex doll (male version, of course).

Is it just me, or does he look a lot thinner? The pics I've, uh, heard about have him as tuff n' buff. The guy in this pic, not so much. Somebody feed him!

This the lowest level of groveling and a flaccid attempt to regain confidence in a woman I have ever seen. What a scumbag.
