Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper is having such a good season that not only are his tape-measure shots getting huge notice, but so are his answers to the media’s questions about them.

Harper’s home run Tuesday night in Toronto against the Blue Jays was measured at 438 feet, but hit a sign next to the restaurant level at Rogers Centre.

It might’ve traveled farther if, first, he hadn’t been reaching a bit for a breaking ball and, second, it hadn’t been stopped by the stadium.

Then, he was asked after the game if—because the legal drinking age in Canada would allow him to—he was going to go get a celebratory beer. The 19-year-old’s response, according to The Score:

“I’m not answering that. That’s a clown question, bro.”

The last five words of his answer quickly went viral, adding to his legend. In fact, they’ve already inspired a T-shirt.
