House Speaker John Boehner finally proved he has a sense of humor behind all those tears and tanning spray side effects when, during a press conference telecast Wednsday on C-SPAN, he made a joke about his boner.

Err, rather, that his name sounds like “Boner.”

Peeved that reporter Luca Gattoni-Celli referred to him as Rep. Dave Camp, whose tax plan issued earlier Wednesday and had most political reporters talking, Boehner responded quickly, saying “Camp? No, it’s Boehner. Boehner.”

Except it sounded like “boner,” because that’s how you say it—and our country’s in sixth grade.

Very big of you, Boner. Way to shoot it to him straight.
