Though he’s 70 years old, Joe Biden doesn’t mind throwing out a few dirty jokes here and there.
Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, who plays the vice president on the HBO show “Veep,” discussed her recent lunch with real-life Vice President Biden during her appearance on “Conan” and revealed the he told her a dirty joke.
“Hey, does your husband like to sleep with the Vice President, because I'm trying to convince Jill it's a good idea,” Biden said to Louis-Dreyfuss.
"It's racy but he didn't mean it in a racy way," she explained. "He was just being funny." Louis-Dreyfuss also spoke highly of the vice president, despite his remark, saying he was incredibly affable and charming.
Biden made yet another dirty joke during his speech at a White House reception for the Irish Prime Minister this week. Biden is of Irish decent himself, and so discussed various sayings of his Irish grandfather:
"There’s all kinds of old Irish sayings. At least my Grandfather Finnegan, I think he made them up, but it says, may the hinges of our friendship never go rusty.
"Well, with these two folks that you’re about to meet, if you haven’t already, there’s no doubt about them staying oiled and lubricated here.
"Ladies and gentlemen, now, for you who are not full Irish in this room, lubricating has a different meaning for us all.”
Prime Minister Enda Kenny responded to the vice president’s “lubricant” joke, saying Biden “seems to have an inexhaustible supply of Irish sayings.”
Biden has long been known for his fearlessness on stage, a quality that has helped boost his political career to where it is today.
