Bryce Harper might be the National League’s most valuable player, but the kid doesn’t have any idea how to pronounce the word “meme.”

The 23-year-old was named the NL MVP on Thursday after hitting .330 with 42 home runs for the Washington Nationals while driving in 99 runs. 

During an interview with ESPN, Harper was asked whether he’d rather be bald or only be able to hit seven home runs in a season. 

“I don’t even want to answer that right now because I know how many ‘may-mays’ are going to be out there with me with a bald head,” Harper responded.


Did he just say “may-may”? It’s fine. After all, this is the man who brought the world “Clown question, bro.”

How do you pronounce gif? Cache? Imgur? Pwn? It can be tricky.

Harper doesn’t need to know things like this, he can go yard in any Major League ballpark with ease. And as a three-time MLB All-Star and former rookie of the year he can pronounce things however he wants.


But he was right about those “may-mays” of him with a bald head.

Pretty sweet may-may, bro.
