1. This is the most Joe Biden-y photo you’ve seen all year

    It was one of FDR’s vice presidents, John Nance Garner IV, who is credited with comparing his heartbeat-away-from-the-presidency office as “not worth a bucket of warm piss.” That’s kind of the premise of Veep, Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ well-regarded HBO show. In this photo — maybe the most Joe Biden-y photo ever, second only to The Onion's iconic photoshopped shirtless Joe Biden washing a Trans-Am at the White House — Joe Biden doesn’t make the office look all that shabby.

     

  2. Introducing the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, the first new version of the sports car in eight years. “It’s finally here, folks, and it looks great.”

    The look and the resurrection of the Stingray subtitle, which dates to 1963, “hint at the past of the Corvette,” while some other cues — the old round tail lights are gone, the hood is vented, and the improved interior is wrapped in leather and aluminum — point to the car’s future. 

    Is it worth the wait?
