Old Handsome Joe Biden was on NBC's "The Tonight Show" t'other night, and he shared some friendly chat with Jimmy Fallon, broken into a whole bunch of little short clips by NBC-Universal because they are corporate rat bastards who won't simply put up one goddamned YouTube clip of the whole appearance, and we hates the nasssty teevees and their social networking teams, HATES THEM!


BUT! We still loves the nice Old Handsome Joe Biden, yesss, so here are a bunch of network-approved embeds that won't get yanked for copyright infringement, unlike some hypothetical "full interview" version that some YouTuber may or may not have edited together and to which we shall not link, but which exists if you look for it. Or not. In this first cliplet, OHJB expresses amazement and wonder that Donald Trump is still a thing, despite being a candidate who "knows as little about -- the world -- as this man does.” Also, Biden reveals the recipe for a perfect presidential candidate:

Also, hey, how about that debate Monday? How OHJB gets through discussing it without shouting "Malarkey!" is a wonder to us. "I've never seen anything like that," he says, in the horrified but amazed tone of someone returning from his first Tijuana donkey show.

Some serious stuff now, about OHJB's work to change the culture around sexual assault. Why did this have to be segregated from the rest of the clips? Maybe it's too much of a bummer? Shut up, NBC, we can handle serious topics on a late-night talk show. And remember, OHJB was one of the original sponsors of the Violence Against Women Act.

Also, too, how about this reminder of the importance of work-life balance? OHJB is a sweetheart who knows what family values really are, and why do we have to be spoon-fed this interview in such tiny bites, damn you, NBC-Universal? It's MALARKEY is what it is (he says it in this one).

There is also this short sweet bit about all the Joe Biden jokes Fallon has done, and we don't even know where the hell in the real interview it came, and we are a little disoriented now. But watch this, because it's got Joe Biden quoting Seamus Heaney, and that's something you don't see every day.

Finally, OHJB and Mr. Fallon eat some ice cream while wearing Ray-Bans, and while it's fun, we could have enjoyed it every bit as much had it been part of a longer clip:

Have a terrific week-end, Wonkers, and remember, it's NBC-Universal who doesn't respect your attention span, not us.

Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug ... He used sarcasm. He knew all the tricks: dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes and satire.

Yr Wonkette is no stranger to the double-edged weapon of sarcasm, we'll admit. OR WILL WE? It's part of our postmodern toolkit, with which we seek to undermine patriotism, faith, the free market, the family, and ultimately America itself. Duh. But we would never be so naive as to think we have a monopoly on irony and sarcasm, oh no, far from it. This week, we dip into the sludge of deletia for some brilliant examples of cutting rightwing wit turned back on us, with devastating results. Hope you're not all TRIGGERED so much you have to go find a SAFE SPACE, libs!

This weekend, hundreds of people are gathering in Denver, Colorado for the 2018 Flat Earth Conference -- two whole days of people with suspiciously Andy Warhol-like hair yelling "Where's the curve?!?" and talking about ice walls -- and we are missing out! Flat earthers are kind of the best of all conspiracy theorists, because aside from a few fascists and anti-Semites in the mix, they are mostly harmless cranks who just want to feel like they are way smarter than all of the scientists. As far as I know, believing in a Flat Earth, while stupid, has never hurt anyone -- which is honestly kind of refreshing these days!
