Because whenever I read a headline like "Romney Pranks the Press," I immediately think of Romney's long history of "pranks," like this classic, or the oldie-but-goodie where he tricked a blind teacher into walking into a glass door.

But, no. Instead, he made a joke about erasing the media's hard drives, which is apparently a callback to that hilarious prank at the end of his term as governor of Massachusetts, when his administration deleted government records. What a kidder, this guy.
