Just as we sometimes enjoy topping off our midmorning caffeine intake with an afternoon cup of joe, we also enjoy a good laugh. Enter Ian Murphy, the Buffalo Beast editor who dialed up Wisconsin Gov.

Check out this blog post about the incident on the Huffington Post. And, to hear the exchange yourself just click play below.
