Video: Nationals OF Bryce Harper And The 'Clown Question'

Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper could teach the media a thing or two about reporting. Harper, 19, was asked by a Canadian reported on Tuesday if he would partake in a beer while the Nationals were in Toronto, where the drinking age is 19, for a series against the Blue Jays.

"That's a clown question, bro," said the Washington outfielder.

His reaction to the question has Twitter buzzing with clown questions, clown references and all things related to red-nosed puffery on Wednesday morning. His reaction to the amateurish question has made him into a temporary internet folk hero, or something like that.

Now, the video of Harper's reaction has surfaced on the web, courtesy of The Score. Watch it here:
