The Internet Comes Together to Buy Joe Biden a Trans Am
No matter what happens on November 6, it looks like Vice President Joe Biden will be a winner… of a vintage Pontiac Trans Am, that is.
To find out why, you have to go back to 2009 when ‘The Onion’ spoofed the VP’s blue class mannerisms with an article titled “Shirtless Biden Washes Trans Am In White House Driveway.”
After Biden’s enthusiastic and frank debate performance earlier this month, some Farkers decided that they should get “Uncle Joe” a Trans Am for real. So they launched an Indiegogo page to raise the $25,000 needed to put Biden behind the wheel of the muscle car.
At a little over $14,000 raised, they are well on their way to their goal.
Sadly, campaign finance laws will forbid Biden from actually accepting the gift. Meaning we won’t get to see him washing the vehicle in front of the White House (or his house back in Delaware) sans shirt.
Instead the car will be auctioned off for charity. Fortunately, the photo-shopped picture which started this all will last forever.
