During an otherwise routine tour promoting the new federal overtime rule, Joe Biden made an audacious claim on Wednesday while visiting an Ohio ice cream company.

“My name is Joe Biden and I love ice cream,” alleged Biden. “You all think I’m kidding—I’m not. I eat more ice cream than three other people you’d like to be with, all at once.”

Bold words, certainly. But does the Vice President’s record back it up? After an exhaustive, 15-minute investigation, Gawker managed to uncover these shocking photos:
