So, so many jokes.
But we'll keep them to ourselves considering the man's condition.
Yes, former Vice President Dick Cheney underwent heart surgery, getting a new heart after being on the heart transplant list for 20 months.
He is said to be doing well.
The Cheney family gave an update on his condition by releasing the following statement:
"Although the former Vice President and his family do not know the identity of the donor, they will be forever grateful for this lifesaving gift.
Former Vice President Cheney is thankful to the teams of doctors and other medical professionals at Inova Fairfax and George Washington University Hospital for their continued outstanding care."
The 70-year-old has suffered five heart attacks since 1978.
Good to hear he's recuperating well, though.
Get some rest before you go out and enjoy that new heart of yours!
