Happy Birthday, Mr. Vice President!

Vice President Joe Biden was born today in 1942. Happy birthday, Mr. Vice President! And yes, that is how you address the vice president.

It’s your birthday, Mr. Vice President, so go ahead and enjoy that ice cream.

Did you know that our vice president struggled with a speech impediment as a child? He had a stutter and was mockingly called “Dash” and “Joe Impedimenta.” However, he overcame it by memorizing long passages of poetry and reciting it to himself in front of a mirror.

And look at him now.

Yes, sometimes he puts his foot in his mouth, but he’s become a talented orator, which is all the more inspiring considering his childhood stutter.

Have a fantastic November 20th!
