Favorite Onion Joe Biden Headline

Postby Madcity Expat » Fri Mar 08, 2013 11:26 am

There are so many... but I gotta go with this one:

Biden Scores 800 Feet Of Copper Wire
Calling it a “major-ass haul” that would provide “some much-needed scratch,” Vice President Joe Biden reportedly scored over 800 feet of copper wire from a foreclosed home in the D.C. suburbs, White House sources confirmed Thursday.

I must have sent that link to ten people, it was so funny. My favorite as well.

On a less grandiose level, I also liked "Biden Pins Up Guitar Lesson Flyers on White House Bulletin Board."

Biden is the new Anchower.

For me, it's the one about holing up down in Mexico until things cool off a bit. However, let's be frank - they're all awesome.

Shirtless Biden Washes Trans Am In White House Driveway
Taking advantage of the warm spring weather Monday, Vice President Joe Biden parked his 1981 Trans Am in the White House driveway, removed his undershirt, and spent a leisurely afternoon washing the muscle car and drinking beer.

How The Onion's 'Diamond' Joe Biden Took on a Life of His Own

The Onion version of Joe Biden is a character who both wildly diverges from, yet reflects, the real living vice president. Their writers take the Biden who hangs out with bikers, but they make him a drunk. They take the Biden who swoons women and have him make out with Janna Ryan after the VP debate. "I'm sure Joe Biden would deny most of our coverage," Nackers says. But he seems to like it. Last January, Biden told Yahoo! News that he thought the spoofs were “hilarious.” Then, on Friday, while the fake Joe was taking questions on Reddit, the real VP sent this tweet insulting the [fake one's] taste in cars:

    Office of VP Biden @VP

    Q for @reddit AMA with my @TheOnion pal: A Trans-Am? Ever look under the hood of a Corvette? #imavetteguy –VP pic.twitter.com/xPGMBBYl


So, that leads to the obvious question... what's a cooler veep-mobile, a Trans Am or a 'vette?

Neither. It's a Pontiac Fiero.

Not the onion, but in my opinion, kind of even funnier than the onion:

Bin Laden Leaves Joe Biden Off Hit List, Suggests VP Could Help Bring Down U.S.
Yowza. It’s one thing to have the Republican opposition deriding you as a buffoon or certain members of your own party grumbling that maybe you should be bumped from the ticket. But when the world’s most famous terrorist is plotting to bring down America by putting you in charge? That’s just cold.

I say funny-hah-hah, because it shows that even terrorists 'get' the whole 'Diamond Joe' thing.

What's their slogan - 'The Truth Will Make You Cry?' So in a way, the truth is even onion-y-ier.
