A parody of Vice President Joe Biden from the satirical news outlet The Onion has apparently morphed into an honest-to-goodness political reality. Some supporters of Biden have started a fundraising page to buy the country’s second-highest-ranking political figure a vintage Trans Am sports car.
“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,” writes the campaign’s creator and Fark writer, “Hack Patooey.” He tells Yahoo! News that the project was thought up with several of his colleagues and Fark readers.
Here’s a bit more detail on the project.
