(Video) VP Biden does it again: 'The president has a big stick' gaffe goes viral

Vice President Joe Biden is known for his "foot-in-mouth" comments. and I am happy to report he is still aiming to please. His latest gaffe about President Obama did not disappoint and is going viral. Late night comedians everywhere are having a field day with this one.

While addressing the folks at New York University on Thursday, Biden said this: "..I promise you, the president has a big stick, I promise you." Gulp. I have condensed the speech to get to the good part for the rest is irrelevant at this point. All everyone cares about are the "dirty" few words.

The double entendre here is quite clear--well at least to the rest of us but apparently not to Biden or his speechwriters.

He was attempting to bolster his President's foreign policy "creds" and pick on Mitt Romney's while giving a campaign speech and ended up sounding like he was auditioning his "boss" for porn, a male escort service or Chippendale Stripper club.

The laughter and snickers are resoundingly loud on this one and Biden is now defending his "big stick" gaffe. Even the crowd he was addressing got the slip-up immediately, for there were scattered chuckling as Biden continued to cluelessly ramble on.

Was this a Freudian slip? We know of the age-old sterotype about Black men and their "size" and I'm wondering if Biden was having a moment. At this point, the president should know to keep his VP on a short leash for his run-away mouth can sometimes hurt more than help.

Click on the video above to take a listen if you haven't heard it before. It's Friday, why not let out a laugh or two at the VP's expense, regardless of which political side you lean towards.

Keep them coming VP Biden, this is better than cable.
