It can't be said Vice President Joe Biden doesn't have a sense of humor. So it goes to follow that VP Biden would, of course, give much love to "Diamond" Joe Biden, the parody version of him that the funny people over at The Onion created. (Full disclosure: I used to work for The A.V. Club, the sister publication of The Onion.) The satirical news source has put out an ebook about "Diamond" Joe and is promoting the release by taking part in one of Reddit's "Ask Me Anything" sessions. This didn't escape the actual VEEP who, via his Twitter account, shot The Onion version of him a question about cars, playing off the above image that The Onion used for the cover of the ebook. "Diamond" Joe didn't overlook the shout out either and played back in only the way he would.
