Riddle of Joe Biden Solved!

So this has been bothering me for a while. I used to watch John Byner the comic quite a bit in my earlier days – some of you may remember him. He had this stunt guy on his show called Super Dave Osborne. He used to be on all the time.  About the time he stopped showing up on television, I started to notice this Joe Biden guy in the news a lot more often. I never gave it much thought, never connected the two, until I happened to see an old picture of Super Dave. I think these two are in fact the same person! Look at these pictures and tell me what you think:

They could be twins! As a matter of fact, if you have ever seen Super Dave in action, the resemblance is downright eerie. My theory is that the guy got tired of spending so much time in the hospital, and decided to take his professional talents into another arena. Seriously – look this over and tell me that the Vice President hasn’t handled his affairs in essentially the same fashion time and again. And I’ve never seen them together. I really think I’m on to something here.

    Do you remember Super Dave’s catch phrase?, the one he used after
    busting himself up in every failed stunt? It was “OOOoooh NEW PAIN!!!”

    I’ll bet that’s what president uhhhhbama and jay carney say every time biden
    goes off the cuff with his remarks.

    Nah, I think he’s McLean Stevenson’s twin.

    SecondMouse, you’re gonna spend the rest of your life looking over your shoulder for an enraged John Byner.

    I don’t know why, but I’ve always thought of Uncle Choo-Choo like this.

    If you want to see something scary….. twins separated at birth scary,,,,compare the recent picture of Jim Messina with “Obama Care” written on his hands and the arrest photo of Jared Loughner.

    I loved watching Bizarre when I was a kid, and I was a big Super Dave fan. My deepest apologies to John Byner and Bob Einstein (Super Dave) for inflicting this analogy upon them. There can be no question that they are both far better men than the one I’ve compared them to. Biden makes this an easy thing to say about people I’ve never met. And that reference to Steve Martin’s character in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a pretty good one. If we could just get Biden into an eye patch…

    I realize mine is not a fair comparison, because everything Bob Einstein did for a laugh was intended to be humorous. But I thought we could use a laugh.

    I don’t remember where I saw it, but there was a side by side comparison of Walter, Jeff Dunham’s dummy and Joe Biden, Barak Obama’s dummy. The resemblance was amazing! :em01:

    I consider Walter to be the smarter dummy.

    Fantastic! Someone else remembers John Byner’s “Bizarre”! Speaking of which one of my favorite sketches from the show.
