"Diamond" Joe Biden wrote on Reddit:

You are welcome to ask me anything about the book, how to round up tail and make them wail, my Trans Am, things you can make into a pipeBarack, or where we can hook up later if you're a smokin' hot mamacita.

I'm fairly hammered right now so I'll try to answer as many of your questions as I can before I pass out. I don't know what other crap I'm supposed to type here. Please buy this book or some real rough dudes are gonna hurt Joe real bad. Until then, grab a brewski and enjoy the ride.
