Move over, Kim Kardashian. Step aside, Donald Trump. Make way, Honey Boo Boo. It seems there may be another reality show superstar waiting in the wings — our own vice president, Joe Biden. And no, we’re not kidding.

Biden is the subject of a new petition posted on the White House website which calls for the politician to have his own reality show on the television news network C-SPAN. ...

Stranger things have happened ... consider “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” “Amish Mafia” and “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding,.”

The former senator from Delaware has been well known for his quirky remarks and bright, ready smile throughout his tenure in Washington, but it was his comments caught on camera during the swearing in of the 113th Congress that caught the attention of Internet surfers. While welcoming the senators and their families, Biden exchanged jokes and off-beat remarks with them as they posed for photos, saying such things as “If you ever need any help on your pecs, let me know,” and “You’ve got beautiful eyes, mom,” to one senator’s mother. He was once caught by a live mic telling Obama before an official address that passage of health care reform was “a big (expletive) deal.” He also singlehandedly made “malarkey” one of the most looked-up words of 2012 by using it in a vice presidential debate.

Evidently, enough people think the veep is such a hoot that they created the petition urging the Obama administration to allow cameras into the daily activities of Biden, thus creating a one-of-a-kind reality show for the network.

Who needs Snooki when you have good old Joe?
