    Capping off what has been an eventful week for Joe Biden, the satirical newspaper The Onion published an “autobiography” of the vice president in e-book form, released Friday. Called The President of Vice, the e-book maintains the same voice as its extensive coverage of Biden, who has starred in some of the newspaper’s most famous parodies over the years. The satirical publication once doctored a photo of Biden washing a Trans-Am shirtless in the White House driveway, which the vice president weighed in on later, saying he has washed cars shirtless, but “at least The Onion could have me washing a Trans-Am convertible.” The authors of the book will participate in a Reddit Ask Me Anything on Friday afternoon.
