"Clown question, bro" was born on June 12, 2012, the only child of 19-year-old Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and a Canadian TV reporter. Overnight, "Clown Question, bro" became an Internet sensation and the world's most hilarious way to rebut an allegedly unsatisfactory inquiry. But tragedy struck today in the halls of Congress, where "Clown question, bro" found itself the victim of a brutal and obviously premeditated attack by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid:
"Clown question, bro" succumbed to its injuries at Georgetown University Hospital. It was one week old.
Police are investigating Reid on charges of meme-slaughter.
