Vice President Joe Biden stepped out for lunch Thursday at a new sandwich restaurant that opened near the White House. The scene, via a White House pool report:
Biden's order: Two medium Italians, one with hot peppers, the other with hot peppers on the side, and neither with onions. He also ordered another large Italian and a large Bobbie with hot peppers on the side. Biden emphasized the importance of peppers.
"The only way to eat these things is with hot peppers, but not everybody understands that. You know what I mean?" he said.
The total was $56.25. Biden pulled out a wad of cash and realized he was short. "Alright man," he said, and then turned around and called out to Fran Person, his personal aide, "Fran, you got ten bucks?"
