When Vice President Joe Biden speaks before a crowd he tries to be as relatable as possible, but Wednesday in India he hinted he might be related to them as well.

The veep spoke before the Bombay Stock Exchange in Mumbai and recounted a letter he received when he was first elected to the U.S. Senate back in 1972.

“Off script for a second here…one of the first letters I received and I regret I never followed up on it. Maybe some genealogist in audience can follow up for me, but I received a letter from a gentleman named Biden–Biden, my name–from Mumbai, asserting we were related. Seriously,” Biden began. “Suggesting that our mutual, great, great, great, something or other worked for the East India Trading Company back in the 1700s and came to Mumbai.”

Biden then vowed to finally follow up and find out if he and this Biden were related. “And so I was thinking about it, if that’s true, I might run here in India for office,” he joked.

Well that explains my personal experience. I recently received a similar e-mail from a gentleman in Nigeria regarding a multi-million $$$ inheritance. Looks like I'm part Nigerian and never knew. Boy, am I going to enjoy all that cash!
