Randy Roberts of the Findlay, OH Courier has a nice blog covering some of his work. There’s no sandwich in the picture (Randy, are there others?) but here’s his caption:
Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden contemplates his choice of pie at Wilson’s Sandwich Shop on Main Street on Sept. 17, 2008, as he visits Findlay, Ohio to stump for presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama.
Randy’s original post is here, and you should check some of his other photos:
Current count: 17 sandwiches, plus 12 of ice cream (and we’re resisting the urge to start counting pie).
I do have a question for you. Actually two. And do please reply. You know you coerce with rather a lot of emotional, or communistic, blackmail, people into donation into your quaffers. Funds that is. You know that is wrong? Now don't you. You know that you are supposed to live in a free state and a free country and you don't. Well I find it shocking. I haven't got any money you see, and you still expect a person of my class and my character to donate? Well, let us put this thlot
What does this have to do with sandwiches?
Rachel points us to a new ice cream picture, fresh from Columbus, OH and the North Market.
Current count: 17 sandwiches, plus 12 of ice cream.
Also from Arnold, this excellent additional frame from our popular “Double Cone” series. Note how the VP is preparing to use his teeth in case the bite is too big to corral with tongue alone.
Joe eating TWO ice cream cones. He decided against the ice cream sandwich after learning he could get twice as much as cream this way.

Joe Biden visits a convenience store in Turkey. A reporter overhears him ask the cashier, “Uh, I don’t speak Turkish, but do you have any sandwiches by chance?”
Ben Smith again, who posted this from a Car and Driver interview:
C/D: Sadly, we must ask about the Onion story. While shirtless, have you ever washed a 1981 Pontiac Trans Am in your driveway?
JB: [Laughing] You think I’d drive a Trans Am? I have been in my bathing suit in my driveway and not only washed my Goodwood-green 1967 Corvette but also simonized it. At least the Onion should have had me washing a Trans Am convertible. I love convertibles.

Biden thanks the troops and gives them turkey sandwiches on Thanksgiving Day
Not Joe Biden (there should be a tag for that!)

Chips and Dip - Unconfirmed accounts suggest that Biden may have put some dip between two chips to form a chip-and-dip sandwich. (I made that up)

Shamelessly stolen from Ben Smith, even though it doesn’t show a sandwich.
Here is another view of Joe Biden and Barack Obama having lunch with the firefighters of Kokomo, Indiana. Biden seems to be really contemplating that sandwich!
Did the VP lose his sandwich? Did someone throw it away?
Thanks to contributor DK
Another shot of Joe Biden & Barack Obama with the firefighters of Kokomo, Indiana. I think Biden is wiping his hands here, which is a real treasure in this series.
Joe Biden meets with President Viktor Yushchenko in Ukraine, with all the ingredients for a sandwich right in front of them!
