US vice president Joe Biden - one half of the most beautiful bromance in politics - has hinted massively that he might follow in Barack Obama's footsteps (and Donald Trump's) and run for president in 2020.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, he told them with a smile: "I'm going to run in 2020. For president. So, uh, what the hell, man."

And the result is memes, and lots of them.

This old favourite is back.

But before you get ordering your Joe Biden campaign merch, it's not exactly certain yet whether he meant it or not - asked if he was joking, Biden said: "I'm not committing not to run. I'm not committing to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening."

One thing's for sure - 2020 can't come quick enough.
