Under Armour will begin selling That's a clown question, bro T-shirts after the phrase was made famous by Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., subsequently used the retort at a news conference.
Harper responded to a Toronto reporter's question about whether he was going to drink a beer to celebrate a monster home run he hit against the Toronto Blue Jays with, That's a clown question, bro.
Harper is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is also 19, below the U.S. legal drinking age of 21 but at the legal drinking age in Toronto, where the Nationals were playing.
Now Harper has filed an application to trademark that's a clown question, bro and is seeking to put the phrase on apparel, namely, shirts, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, pants, shorts, hats, visors, gloves, shows, according to the trademark application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Comcast SportsNet Washington reported the sports apparel company Under Armour will make the shirts. The company did not immediately return a call confirming the report.
Harper's clown question response lit up the Internet and was borrowed by Harry Reid when a reporter asked the Senate majority leader whether he would put the immigration-related DREAM Act on the floor of the Senate floor.
I don't want to answer that question. That's a clown question, bro, the 72-year-old senator quipped. Video of the remark can be seen below.
The Under Armour shirts will come in handy when any of your friends asks you something ridiculous.
