Vice President Joe Biden is a self-proclaimed "genuine lover of ice cream."

"My name is Joe Biden and I love ice cream," the vice president said Wednesday during an Ohio event promoting the Obama administration's new overtime-pay rules.

There's even a Tumblr dedicated to the vice president's affinity for frozen dairy products.

The good thing about being vice president is that you get to travel around quite a bit. And Biden has used this as an opportunity to visit a handful of ice-cream parlors.
