Why Is The Vice President The Butt Of So Many Jokes?

I was searching for a picture of Fat Albert’s…back side. I thought it would be fun to cut-and-paste a picture of my face on the cartoon icon’s hip pocket and write an accompanying blog post explaining why I absolutely had to wear my new platinum fubus in public because my blog was advertised on that gelatinous billboard. It was surprisingly difficult to find a picture of Fat Albert’s derriere. Google couldn’t produce one, and if Google cannot find it…

The search did remind me why I should be careful about what I type into a search engine. I was not prepared for the search terms “Fat” plus “Albert” plus “butt” to return so many pictures of Al Gore. I did find a link to a t-shirt sold by The writing on the shirt says something that every man who has ever been in anything close to a serious relationship intimately understands but would never in their drunkest state utter out loud.

Not if they wanted to live.

It read:

Don't throw anything.  I live in another state, and you'll only have to buy a new monitor.

First of all, he ain't the Vice President no more. Here I was expecting a lovely joke at the expense of Biden, and you're hauling out that old chestnut?

Second of all, that t-shirt looks like it COULD be gender-neutral.

Just sayin'.

Besides, my man likes my butt. So I'm just fine, thank you very much.

You can stop ducking.

I'll just keep waiting for the post that includes your cut-and-pasting project...

Like Teacher Mommy I was expecting something relating to Biden.

BWAHAHAHA that's funny! That's my kind of humor :)

That's kinda like Kevin's shirt that we found at Wal Mart it said: I do everything the voices in my wife's head tells me to do.
