At last night's White House Correspondent's Dinner, President Barack Obama made a joke at the expense of his second in command, Vice President Joe Biden:

"It is strange to think that I have just two and a half years left in this office. Everywhere I look, there are reminders that I only hold this job temporarily," said Obama to laughs.

"But it’s a long time between now and 2016, and anything can happen. You may have heard the other day, Hillary had to dodge a flying shoe at a press conference."

The president then showed what appeared to be a photo-shopped picture of Biden holding a shoe, getting ready to hurl it at an intended target.

The president added, "I love that picture."
