While reminiscing about the good old days serving on the New Castle County Council, President Joe Biden shared a strange tale about the time he put a dead dog on the doorstep of a female constituent who was "not of the same persuasion as I was politically."

Speaking at the National Association of Counties Legislative Conference on Tuesday, Biden told his audience “I know from personal experience how hard the job you have is,” before launching into an amusing little anecdote about the time a mean, rich lady (who was surely one of those awful Republicans) called the council to insist a dead dog be removed from her yard.

"I represented a middle to working class district. There was one very wealthy neighborhood. And I got a call one night, a woman said to me – obviously not of the same persuasion as I was politically – called me and said, 'there’s a dead dog on my lawn,'" Biden said.

“And I said, ‘yes ma’am, did you call the county?’ And she said, ‘Yes, they’re not here.’ And I said, ‘Well, I’ll get 'em in the morning,’” he continued.

“She said, ‘I want it removed now, I pay your salary.' So I went over. I picked it up. She said, 'I want it out of my front yard.' I put it on her doorstep,” he added, grinning at his own cleverness.

A video clip of Biden's unusual speech made the rounds on social media with mixed reviews.

RNC research pointed out that Biden had told this story before but, interestingly, it had a different ending at the time.

Some people actually liked Biden's story, or at least they didn't completely hate it.



Then there were those who just couldn't bring themselves to appreciate Biden's comedic genius:
