The night the Bidens came to dinner

by on 17/12/11 at 7:01 am

Immediately after the 65 year old port and Cuban cigars, the dinner party livened up with Joe Biden's favorite team sport...Dwarf tossing! There were several to choose from, unfortunetely, all were from his district.

Somewhere, England’s Green & Pleasant Land, circa 1999  –  So I said to him “Senator,” I said.  “Please, it’s Joe, call me Joe!” …”‘OK, Senator.  Joe, er Joe! How about we discuss this over  gnocchi and some Barolo, the ’87 vintage is pretty good.”

“Hmm, your place or mine, Judge?”

“Mine, Joe, why don’t you and Jill come on over tonight?  We’re home at the South Coast schloss,  I’ll be cooking borsch with porcini ravioli, roast wild duck and a blueberry pavlova.  My husband’s spent all morning up on the Beavis Tower roof blasting to smithereens an entire flock of overwintering mallard.  Or would you prefer some spit-roast widgeon?”

“Widgeon or mallard would do just fine, Judge,  what’s all this about Dick Cheney ravioli, you cooked his goose too?”

“Ha ha, Joe, most amusing, Joe! You know poor Dick’s duck shooting record? Legend in his lunchtime, as they say down at the Nato NAAFI. Can’t believe he’ll make Veep next year.”

“Yeah, well, someone’s gotta keep a grip on the remote; besides, the real problem’s General Albert Stubblebine III and his First Earth Battalion. But that’s another story, just don’t get me started, the stitches are still fresh! Let’s just say that by comparison Dich Cheney’s sane – or at least retro-engineerable back to factory settings.”

“You’d know more about that than me, Joe, I’m just a simple Justice official with a few bill barrels of sweet light crude and some natural gas drilling rights…

“We’ll be there.”

“Seven for seven thirty, and have  a pleasant flight.””

“Wouldn’t miss it for all the world.”

    …what an opportunity to be ‘Judge Judy’ and send the clown up the river!…

    ….the sound of those #6’s hitting the plate after being spit out must have been music to your ears!

    Yep, a mouthful of buckshot not always conducive to successful digestion, Cap, especially if it’s of the lead variety.

    Reckon Joe was a little hard of hearing at the time, confusing ‘Poor Cheney’ with the Italian for home grown ceps – or penny buns as they’re known in the trade…
