Biden says 'The Onion' spoofs of him are 'hilarious'

From NBC's Mark Murray
By now, many of you have probably seen the The Onion's spoofs of Vice President Biden -- like the one with him washing his Trans Am shirtless, or the one with him in a ponytail, or the one where he gets a lifetime ban from Dave and Buster's.

Well, Biden said in an interview with Yahoo! that he's a fan of the spoofs.

"I think it's hilarious," Biden told Yahoo! in a wide-ranging interview Thursday.

"I saw the one of me washing a Trans-Am automobile in the driveway shirtless with tattoos all over myself and out there," Biden said with a smile. He took some issue with the story, though. "By the way, I have a Corvette-- a '67 Corvette-- not a Trans-Am."

Biden laughed that he's probably not supposed to encourage the mocking, but he said he still gets a kick out of it.

"Most people refer to me who know me, and even in the press, of being a little bit square," Biden said. "And now, I'm the philanderer. I think it's hilarious, the stuff they do on me."
