He's an open book! Vice President Joe Biden's expressions lit up social media during Monday's inauguration festivities.

Whether it was pointing both index fingers, throwing his head back and laughing, giving a bemused look to Beyonce or sharing a chuckle with President Obama, there was rarely a dull moment for our VP.

See our favorite seven faces below (including when he shook hands with our own Al Roker).
