When we learned that Bryce Harper had trademarked “That’s a clown question, bro,” we knew that clown question apparel was coming. Then, Under Armour released a shirt that referenced the phrase with “Don’t be a clown bro,” but curiously fell short of using the exact words that caused a nationwide firestorm.

The apparel company that is endorsed by Harper didn’t use TACQB? Now we know why.

First brought to our attention by tweeters @swagbeastmode and @DCSportsFTW, The MLB shop is selling a Bryce Harper shirsey with “That’s a clown question, bro” emblazoned on the front. Being that Harper owns the trademark, I can only assume that he’s benefiting from its $26.99 price tag.

I‘m not sure how long they’ve been selling the shirt, and it seems to be on back order, so the earliest you can expect to be sporting the catchphrase is September. A little late to the party, but whatever.
