Vice President Joseph Biden’s “average Joe” candor is well known, making easy fodder for satirists and comedians.

Today, he gave them more ammo.

Speaking at the annual conference of a Hispanic advocacy group in Las Vegas, Biden took a break from blasting Mitt Romney to talk about his family upbringing in 1950s Delaware. Living in a three-bedroom, split-level home with three siblings, parents, and at least one senior made for some awkward situations, according to the vice president.

“It was wonderful for children,” Biden began. “By the way — having your grandpop living with you, having your great aunt, your uncle, for real. Those walls were awful thin. I wonder how the hell my parents did it. But that’s a different story. I know you don’t know anything about that. I know none of you in your families have done the same thing.”
