Boehner Makes ‘Boner’ Joke

AP

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) was in a jolly mood at his weekly press conference Thursday, cracking a joke about the phonetic spelling of his name (which is actually pronounced Bay-nurr).

“Mr. Camp,” a reporter said, mistakenly referring to House Ways & Means Chair Dave Camp (R-MI), before correcting himself.

“It’s Boner. Boner,” the Speaker responded, to laughs.
