In order to let Vice President Biden know just how much we appreciate him, while also making a very silly part of the internet come true (we are the internet after all), let’s buy Uncle Joe a Trans Am like the one that is featured in the Onion article linked to above.
Vice President Biden knows about this meme and finds it “hilarious.” Let’s make it even funnier, more awesome, and gosh darnit, give us another thing to talk about about in addition to the cat pictures and rage comics.
Now, Uncle Joe won’t be able to accept this behemoth of steely American grace and power. He has these pesky laws and regulations and political-y things to deal with. Take into consideration his magnanimity and power of personality, he probably wouldn’t be able to drive the Trans AM without causing a mass outpouring of Conservative Tears.
That being said, the internet will still purchase the car and auction it off for charity. All proceeds will be distributed to the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD.
Maybe if we ask nicely, Joe Biden will wash it on the White House lawn.
Playful as it is, this project has already raised $4,649 on indigogo, with big donors claiming perks such as “Grab a feel of Fightin’ Joe’s Jock Strap” and “sign a pair of Biden’s jorts.”
Perhaps they really will reach their goal of $25,000 for the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD. (The Oatmeal‘s lighthearted campaign to raise money for a museum dedicated to Nikola Tesla succeeded in soliciting $1.4 million USD in seed money.) But even if it doesn’t, following the Veep’s strong performance debating rival Rep. Paul Ryan this week, it may give President Obama’s team some additional geek support.
See the campaign video after the break.
