Video: C-Span Flooded with Prank Calls About Romney's Penis

C-Span is not where the average person would go for comedy, and that's putting it lightly. But lately, the droning political live channel has become a bit more interesting, due to what may either be one funny man with multiple personalities, or a group of jesters who think the channel could use a little more excitement. Either way, C-Span doesn't seem able to stop prank callers who want to talk about Romney's penis size, and it's pretty funny.

On Monday, after flattering former New Hampshire governor Judd Gregg, a caller asked Gregg asked a seemingly serious question about  Newt Gingrich‘s campaign before smoothly slipping in "And, uh, how big is Mitt Romney's penis?" 

On Tuesday, another caller, sporting a Yankee accent, was desperate to find an answer to the same question. 

A third, sneaky caller asks how C-Span is working to crack down on obscene calls. He then turns the conversation to why Romney's supporters are voting for him:  "because they care about the economy, because they care about winning the election, and they're voting him because of his huge penis."
