Too often, the Internet is the source for the day's most shocking and unpleasant news. It seems like almost every day, people are offended by something new (and ridiculous). Like coffee cups. Or the wrong man being chosen for the "Sexiest Man Alive" title. It's usually quite a jungle out there.
But not today, friend. Today, we have a story that is so delightful and pure and sure to make you smile.
It's all about America's favorite BFFs: Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
We're pretty sure Barack Obama and Joe Biden are the best friends to have ever stepped foot into the White House.
via: GettyJust look at those smiles! They've clearly got this whole friendship thing 100 percent figured out. Take away the suits and they look like two regular guys enjoying a beer together before the big game.
They've even got friendship bracelets!If you have bracelets, your friendship is guaranteed to last forever. It's a law of friendship that everyone learns at Summer camp.
During Obama's presidency, the bromance between these two guys inspired one of the best memes of all time. People imagined the banter between the two of them, often to hilarious result:
Obama: Wave at the people, Joe. Biden: IMMA POINT AT'EM Obama: Please just wave. Biden: http://t.co/5Y6nuvCzcu— Reverend Scott (@Reverend Scott)1417286340.0
While the Internet can often be a touch mean-spirited, the Obama-Biden memes are completely wholesome and lovely.

So when it came time to celebrate Joe Biden's birthday on November 20, Obama presented the former vice president with the perfect gift: a meme of his own creation!
ME: Joe, about halfway through the speech, I’m gonna wish you a happy birth-- BIDEN: IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! ME: Joe.… https://t.co/5qLUsDoaMi— Barack Obama (@Barack Obama)1511204531.0

Some people are feeling like we didn't deserve a friendship as pure as Obama and Biden's.If that's the case, the current administration is probably more along the lines of what we deserve. You know what they say: you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.
Mostly, everyone wishes that they could find a friendship like the one our former president and vice president have found.
