Vice-President Biden: Hello Mr. President, are you there?
President Obama: Good morning to you Joey. How are things going so far?
Vice-President Biden: Pretty good Barry. Say have you heard anymore concerning that New England Patriots Super Bowl Ring that Vladimir Putin reportedly stole?
President Obama: Well Joey, kinda, sorta, I guess. Old Vlady insists that Robert Kraft gave him the super bowl ring.
Vice-President Biden: Well, Putin is being a real jerk about that. I just talked to Robbie yesterday and he is really upset. He told me that if he'd had any idea that the Russian dude was going to keep the ring, he would have pretended that he could not take it off of his finger and that way he would have kept.
President Obama: I know. I guess there are some folks who you just can't trust because all they are focused on is finding ways to cheat the system.
Vice-President Biden: Have you thought about getting the FBI or the CIA involved in trying to get the ring back?
President Obama: I sure have Joey. But to be honest with you, I think it would cause a big headache if them GOPers got wind of it.
Vice-President Biden: Well sir, have you thought about calling Salvatore Goombalini about getting the ring back for Mr. Kraft. We all know how good Sal is at getting impossible things done.
Salvatore Goombalini: Hey goombahs, giva me 24 hours and I'll hava Bobby Kraft's super bowl ring back on his finger.
President Obama: Morning Sal. Great. Go for it my friend.
Vice-President Biden: Thanks Sal. We owe you one pal.
Salvatore Goombalini: Hey guys, datsa wadda I do. I'll talk to da boaf of youse later.
