A mock photo of Vice President Joe Biden washing a Trans-Am shirtless. Strange? Distasteful? Crossing the line?
Not so, Biden says.
"I think it's hilarious," Biden told Yahoo! in a wide-ranging interview Thursday.
Satirical publication The Onion has repeatedly made the Vice President a target for particularly randy news stories and online cartoon spoofs -- and the jokes have been a viral sensation.

Didn't know about The Onion videos.
“Gotta give him some credit for having a sense of humor.”
Didn’t watch the videos, don’t like his politics, but a man with a sense of humor has some sense.
But about that job...
The Onion News Network is the best news out there. Remember when Obama’s teleprompter broke during a family dinner one day? Nobody else carried that.
And there’s only one TV sports show I watch, SportsDome on the Onion Sports Network.
That makes one.
His clown antics make him look dipschiknik and developmentally challenged.
(PC insert for the sensitive wanks!)
He doesn’t have to have a sense of humor, if the video makes him look more masculine than he is.
Even if he has no sense of humor, this is the proper response his handlers told him to give. Getting mad just makes it more effective and increases its visibility.
Germany’s Chancellor Schroeder found that out when a comedian named Gerd had a song about him. Schroeder actually threatened to sue, and had Gerd kicked out when he tried to personally deliver a CD of the song to Schroeder. The public went crazy, and Schroeder was a national joke. Taking the CD with a smile and a handshake in a photo op would have diffused the situation immediately, and even improved the public opinion of Schroeder a bit.
He may be well practiced in feigning a good nature. He may well have later been cursing and screaming about it. Can't tell from the video so I chose to give him the benefit of the doubt.
