In the dark days of a looming Trump presidency, it’s important we remember to pepper our grave disappointment with a touch of levity. So to ensure that you’re kept cackling at your keyboard—you know, between researching the probability of an electoral college overthrow and cringing at the president-elect’s plan for registering Muslims (seriously, WTF?)—the web has stepped up in the way only it knows how: by continuing the long-standing tradition of the Joe Biden meme.
While “Uncle Joe” may be leaving the White House come January (presumably to single-handedly keep the ice cream industry afloat), he will continue to live on in the form of crass and clever memes, which have in recent days focused on (1) the bromance between Biden and outgoing President Obama, and (2) enacting sweet, sweet revenge on the man we call “Orange Cosby.”
From Biden’s plans to booby trap the White House to the ‘taking out’ of Trump’s horcruxes, these 20 memes (presented in no particular order) exemplify our love for Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., mostly because we can imagine him actually saying each of these things.
Consider it fan fiction for the poli sci nerd in us all.
