So Joe Biden is Going to Be a UPenn Professor, Which Frat Party Will He Crash First?
Good ol’ Uncle Joe is coming to Philly. The former Vice President who came in as Barrack’s right-hand man relatively unknown and left an endeared meme is coming to Philly. He’s won us over with is hilarious candid moments while in office so we’re looking for much of the same when we comes to Philly.
Former Vice President Biden just accepted a job as “Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor,” Biden and will lead the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, based out of Washington, D.C. The center, which is set to open later this year, will be focused on diplomacy, foreign policy and national security, according to a recent article in The Daily Pennsylvanian.
Sounds like dry stuff to everyday folks but we’re sure Joe will find a way to make his classes enjoyable. We can’t imagine him teaching without a few quips here and there. For months there has been whispers among scholars that Biden was planning on “setting up shop” at Penn but those rumor were finally confirmed this week as Joe will come on full time in big roll.
In a recent statement captured by The Daily Philadelphian Joe stated “At Penn, I look forward to building on the work that has been a central pillar of my career in public office: promoting and protecting the post-WWII international order that keeps the United States safe and strong….The Penn Biden Center and I will be engaging with Penn’s wonderful students while partnering with its eminent faculty and global centers to convene world leaders, develop and advance smart policy, and impact the national debate about how America can continue to lead in the 21st Century.”
With Joe hanging around Philly now it’s only a matter of time before we see him doing Phillyish things like eating cheesesteak at 3 am, Wawa runs, chowing down wings at Wing Bow, and giving Russell Westbrook the two bird salute. Who knows he may crash a UPenn party or two. We can’t wait to see.
