'Clown question' shirts to be sold

Bryce Harper's famous phrase, "That's a clown question, bro," soon will be
available on T-shirts, according to a report.

The Washington Nationals' young phenom told Comcast SportsNet on Thursday that Under Armour will begin selling T-shirts with his now often repeated catchphrase.

Harper quipped his popular words last week to a Toronto TV reporter who
asked if the 19-year-old had planned to take advantage of Canada's lower
drinking age after belting a long home run in a win over the Blue Jays.

Harper is a Mormon, a religion that forbids alcohol.

For a brief time, the highest trending topic on Twitter was Harper's
response: "That's a clown question, bro." The outfielder's name also was
among the site's most popular subjects.

Twitter users have been reformulating the phrase to fit different contexts,
too.
