About

“Big F*cking Deal” is a catchphrase and image macro based on an “inappropriate” statement by U.S. Vice President Joe Biden caught on mic during a live television press conference at the White House on March 23, 2010. It spread mostly through political blogs and mainstream news coverage of the gaffe.

Origin

On Sunday, March 20, 2010 the Congress of the United States passed the Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010, a polarizing but possibly monumental piece of legislation regarding health care in the U.S. Three days later, at the White House ceremony to sign the bill into law, Vice President Joe Biden introduced President Barack Obama before a packed room and a live television audience. During the applause, Biden whispered to Obama that the legislation was “a big fucking deal.” This statement was picked up by the microphones and broadcast live over radio and television.

The word “fucking” is considered profane by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. Combined with Joe Biden’s history of public gaffes, this story was picked up immediately by mainstream press and political blogs. Within hours it was made into an image macro. By the morning of the March 24, it was turned into two opportunistic single serving sites:
