14 Mitt Romney Jokes That Are Actually Pretty Funny

Mitt Romney is actually a pretty funny guy. No joke. You just had to be there. (h/t Molly Ball )

At a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Romney pretended that an unsuspecting waitress had grabbed his butt. Later clarified that he was "just teasing."

Romney was glitter-bombed at a rally in Minnesota in February, but reacted to his heckler like a true comedian: addressing him directly and spinning the incident in his favor ("This is confetti! We just won Florida!").

In 2007, responding to widespread mockery of his "hunting varmints" moment, Romney told a Texas crowd that that year, his grandchildren "were disappointed that the Easter bunny hadn't come. He heard I was packing heat." Romney even used a prop; a mounted, taxidermied squirrel.

Romney reminded a group of seniors in New Hampshire of their impending mortality:

"Anybody here over 100 years old?" Romney asked.


"Not yet, but we're getting there, right? We're on our way," continued Romney.

"We're hopefully going to get there soon."

"Well, not so soon. We hope to get there safe and sound."
