On Tuesday, it will be 11 months to the day since Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper uttered his famous "That's a clown question, bro" response to a reporter during a game in Toronto. The response ultimately turned into a pop-culture reference, as well as a line of Under Armour T-shirts. Almost a year later, the 21-year-old is still willing to laugh about it.

When South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney went first overall to the Texans in the 2014 NFL draft on Thursday night, Harper made the joke that everyone was hoping for.

To be clear, Harper was just having fun, and congratulated Clowney as well, tweeting "Congrats to on being the number 1 pick in the draft..He deserves it! Guy is an absolute stud! ."

But it's good to see that Harper is willing to laugh about something that has probably got on his nerves over the last year, and the Internet benefited because of it.
