The Onion's writers have spent several years developing a hilarious, frat-tastic alter-ego for Vice President Joe Biden, a Trans Am-driving, knife-selling, hitchhiking, guitar-shredding party boy with an affinity for booze, women and weed. Readers found "Diamond" Joe so compelling, The Onion wrote a Biden 'autobiography' called "The President of Vice," out Friday on Kindle.
But the real magic happened when The Onion's fake Joe Biden took part in one of Reddit's Ask Me Anything Q&A sessions Friday.
"You are welcome to ask me anything about the book, how to round up tail and make them wail, my Trans Am, things you can make into a pipe, Barack, or where we can hook up later if you're a smokin' hot mamacita," Diamond Joe prompted.
The real Joe Biden took up the offer via the Twittersphere, tweeting a picture of himself with a red Corvette:
Diamond Joe responded, "Dear imavetteguy, Those glorified Camaros aint good for nothing but smokin' the tires."
BOOM! The Internet just finished. You can go home now.
