Joe Biden Autographed Someone’s Copy of That Hot, Young Biden Photo
Joe Biden has held a lot of awesome titles over the past 74 years: Vice President of the United States, U.S. senator, Delawarean, Obama’s BFF, and Inspiration for the Internet’s Thirst.

(He still is now, TBH.) The photo is so good that three George Mason University students have had a blown-up copy of it on display in their kitchen for several months, so when the former veep came to speak at their college this week, sisters Ravin and Rangin Hassan, and roommate Milena Michael took their copy of Hot Biden off their wall, brought it along to the speech, and hoped that he would sign it. And, lo and behold, he did — and with a laugh, according to Milena.
