Well, that’s one way to keep a politician quiet.

A new viral photo of the loquacious vice president with a penchant for public gaffes shows Joe Biden with a cork in it — but at the expense of a 15-month-old toddler. The picture features Biden holding the confused boy, and the tyke's binkie in his mouth.

The boy's mom, Georgina Bloomberg, posted the photo on her Facebook page with the caption: “What’s a boy to do when the Vice President steals your pacifier?”

Bloomberg is the daughter of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Both were attending a ceremony at the British Embassy in Washington.
