Get most commented posts with thumbnails

Nothing hard with this recipe : Simply paste this code anywhere in your theme files, where you'd like the most commented posts to be displayed. Don't forget to replace the custom field name by yours on line 5:

<?php $popular = new WP_Query('orderby=comment_count&posts_per_page=5'); ?>
	<?php while ($popular->have_posts()) : $popular->the_post(); ?>
	<?php $justanimage = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'Image', true);
		if ($justanimage) { ?>
	<img src="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, "Image", true); ?>" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" />
	<?php } else { ?>
	<img src="http://an-alternative-image.jpg" alt="" />
	<?php } ?>
	<h2><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
<?php endwhile; ?>
