7 best Joe Biden faces during inauguration

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).
