Editor's note --  The New Yorker held a caption contest because of Israeli P.M. Netanyahu's speech at the U.N. the other day.

"Thanks to Bibi for being such a good sport in agreeing to select the top three captions. That Bibi, he’s the bomb."

The Wall Street Journal tweeted the winning caption:

Keystone Address

Editor's note -- via The Onion -- Accepting his renomination at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden tapped the top of an Icehouse tallboy, cracked it open, and said, 

“Things are definitely better today than back in ’08, but is this the summer of ’87? Not a fucking chance,” said Biden,

The Vice President reminisced about his days as a carefree 44-year-old senator cruising the Delaware boardwalks.

A replier to Washington Post political wonk Ezra  Klein's retweet noted that the "dude should be drinking Keystone (Scranton)"
