NEWINGTON — When Talia Maselli envisioned her perfect prom date, one man immediately sprang to mind: Vice President Joe Biden.

“Joe Biden makes me laugh,” the Maselli said. “He just cracks me up.”

So she mailed Biden a handwritten note last fall asking him to escort her to the Newington High School prom.

“I am inviting you so far in advance because I’m sure many 17-year-old girls send you prom invitations, and I had to beat them to it,” Maselli said in her letter. “I could only tolerate a high school dance if I was to be escorted by the most delightful man in America.”

Maybe she figures she should get the worst night in her life over-with. After this she can only do better.

I can just imagine Joe trying to pin a corsage on the front of her prom dress. Someone is going to end up in the hospital with a pin shoved right through his or her forehead.

How did "a prom date with Joe Biden" get onto the Bucket List of America's teenage girls?

Homosexuals have a right to ask Biden to the prom. Biden is discriminating and Oba needs to
sign an executive order that says Biden cannot refuse to take a Homo to a prom when asked.

If someone’s good a YouTube vids, this is a perfect opportunity to put these two love birds together. Play the tune “Endless Love” in the background, or something.

NEWINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden was tragically killed today in a freak misunderstanding that occurred when he unexpectedly showed up at the front door of the home belonging to 18-year-old Talia Maselli, who about a year ago had invited Mr. Biden to her high school prom.

Talia’s mother, also a fan of Mr. Biden, answered the door when he arrived, but did not recognize him while speaking to him through her screen door. She was therefore startled by what appeared to simply be just a very old man who was insisting that he had been invited there and was looking forward to an enjoyable evening with Talia.

Ironically, Mrs. Maselli had a shotgun nearby which she had purchased about two years ago when Mr. Biden suggested that shotguns were a much better alternative to assault rifles, and that homeowners who needed protection from intruders could “just fire the shotgun through the door.”

So sadly, that is what she did. Shortly after the shooting it became apparent to Mrs. Maselli exactly what she had done. Her daughter, Talia, who had known Mr. Biden was coming, had posted the news all over Facebook and other social media, but had forgotten to tell her parents. Talia came running downstairs after hearing the shot, and was devastated to find that her prom date had been shot. “Mom, how could you do this - you absolutely ruined my prom”, she cried.

Realizing her mistake, Talia’s mother expressed remorse over Mr. Biden’s death, and also that her daughter would also now have to go to the prom without an escort. As Talia left to go to the prom, she wondered aloud about whether the shotgun advice that Mr. Biden had given was actually good advice for homeowners.

But her father, who was also watching his daughter leave for the prom alone, replied “No, I think Mr. Biden was right about that”.

I’m surprised he didn’t go. And then try to make a move on her on the dance floor.

He’s a piece of sh!t.

Is (s)he a transexual? Biden would actually prefer the optics of that.

Yeah, barf.

But OTOH, she has something I'd wager very few teens have ever received from a Vice President of The United States of America.

The dried corsage and correspondence will be an historical curiosity at worst, a museum piece at best.

Well done, though I would not have included the word “sadly” in the fourth paragraph.

While I share your sentiments as to the origin of the items in question, I would not underestimate their pecuniary valuation amongst the 'true believers' in time.

The notoriety of the person associated with an item is often as good at improving its value as deserving veneration of the source.

Since she really likes the VP then I suppose I'm happy for her.
I wonder when it was that I ceased to be awed by the presidency.
Hmmm, I've gotten old, cynical and UN- impressionable.

LBJ, for me. There was still pomp and pageantry, even respect for the office, but not the awe of earlier years.

Maybe I was just growing up, and would have felt the same regardless of who was in the White House.

Thinking back, though, I think the media fostered the attitude shift, especially when Nixon won.

Somewhere in there, I realized we all wash or smell bad...
