• Real Life Joe Biden Converging on Onion Joe Biden

    Most people know The Onion's version of Vice President Joe Biden is a hilarious yet absurd caricature. The real Joe Biden is a teetotaler who literally can't use the word "literally" correctly, but is otherwise a pretty typical politician.

    Or he was, until reporters — well-versed in Onion satire — began to notice that real-life Biden is becoming indistinguishable from The Onion Biden. I mean, you try telling the difference…

    * Biden, who purchased the white Pontiac in 1983, has made an annual tradition of taking time off each spring to wash and tune-up his vehicle. [The Onion]

    * Joe Biden got the Cinco de Mayo celebration started a few days early with a small 'Dos de Mayo' gathering at the vice president's residence in D.C. [Daily Beast]

    * Biden invited Shober and the other firefighters to visit Washington again. Pointing to an aide, he said, "He’s going to call you, no bulls***." Noticing the pool within earshot, he said, "I didn't know you guys were here." Turning back to Shober, he rephrased: "This is no malarkey. You come to the White House. I'll buy you a beer." [Washington Post]

    * "I'm a frustrated dragster." [Zeke Miller]

    The latter two stories are from today. According to my calculations, Biden will be drunkenly operating the tilt-a-whirl at your neighborhood carnival by 2017.
