Scott Brown, funny guy.
The Republican senator from Massachusetts cracked a joke about presidential hopeful Rick Santorum and condom use during Boston's annual St. Patrick's Day breakfast on Sunday, eliciting hearty laughter and applause from the crowd.
"I see that both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum now have Secret Service with them on the campaign trail," Brown quipped. "In Santorum's case, I think it's the first time he's actually ever used protection."
The joke was apparently lifted from late-night comedian Conan O'Brien.
Santorum has said he is morally opposed to birth control, but believes it should be available.
Brown also took a dig at Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.
"Newt Gingrich wants to build a colony on the moon," he said. "Forget the moon, he should build it on whatever planet Ron Paul is from."
