Let’s play a round of “Would You Rather?”, shall we? What’s worse: Your grandparents cracking sex jokes in your presence, “700 Club” host Pat Robertson explaining why oral sex is OK, or Vice President Joe Biden talking about lubrication and Irish folks breeding like rabbits? If the third scenario scares you most, be glad you weren’t there when it took place Tuesday.
Speaking at the at the White House reception for Irish Prime Minster Enda Kenny, Irishman Biden educated audience members on a well-known stereotype of his people’s high sex drive:
“You know there’s and old Irish saying. There’s all kinds of old Irish sayings. [Laughter] At least my Grandfather Finnegan, I think he made them up, but it says, may the hinges of our friendship never go rusty. Well, with these two folks that you’re about to meet, if you haven’t already, there’s no doubt about them staying oiled and lubricated here. Ladies and gentlemen…now, for you who are not full Irish in this room, lubricating has a different meaning for us all.”
We get it, you’re still going strong from St. Patrick’s Day, but most of us already acknowledge the universally recognized belief that the Irish can’t keep their legs closed, and we don’t need our vice president to remind us.
