From “trouble at the dog show” a monologue by David Letterman:

Biden’s birthday is Thursday, but Obama surprised his No.2 after their weekly lunch Wednesday at the transition office in Chicago. According to staff, Obama presented Biden – a Delaware senator with decades of foreign policy experience – with a dozen cupcakes decorated with candles and teased, “You’re twelve years old!” Staff reported that Biden, ever astute in the art of politics, laughed at his boss’s joke. He responded: “Maybe in Dog Years.”

But obviously, a lot of shelter dogs are mutts, like me.” President-elect Barack Obama, quoted in the New York Times.
