Vice President Joe Biden's November birthday and imagined pranks about President-elect Donald Trump's election have both sparked Twitter memes, but the one trending this weekend likely will be the final one of Biden's time in office.

On Thursday, President Barack Obama surprised Biden by awarding him the Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction, calling him "the best vice president America has ever had" and bringing tears to Biden's eyes.

But once the tears dried, the memes began.

Not everyone was a fan of the medal meme.

But others thought differently.
