Vice President Joe Biden says that he was not referring to his codpiece when he whispered to the President, "This is a big fucking deal".
Biden, who has been on the record for putting his foot in his mouth more times than you can count, emphatically denied when asked by CNN's Larry King if he were replying to President Obama's question about the bulge he noticed in Biden's trousers.
Persisting, Larry King then asked Biden if he had ever worn a codpiece, as some viewers had called in after the State of the Union address to ask whether Biden was carrying heat or what during the address by the President.
"Absolutely not!" exclaimed the Vice President. "What you see is what you get. Hey, ask my wife. She has to crazy glue my genitals to the bed frame so I don't hurt myself when I pole vault out of bed in the morning."
