Romney's sons to Conan: Don't call them the "Romney boys"
(CBS News) Mitt Romney's five sons made an appearance on Conan O'Brien's late-night show on TBS Wednesday night to help America get to know the Romney family a bit better.
The brothers -- Ben, Matt, Craig, Tagg and Josh -- wore name tags so the late-night host could tell them apart. Tagg, the oldest, explained that he was named after a friend of his parents. "I was born in 1970, so I'm glad I wasn't born Moonbeam or Sunshine or something," he joked.
The comedian displayed a picture of the entire extended Romney family, joking, "When they get together there's a global khaki shortage."
O'Brien also noted that Romney's five sons are often referred to as the "Romney boys," making them sound like a boy band. The five guys did acknowledge they'd prefer to be called the "Romney brothers."
Romney's family -- including his wife Ann in addition to his five sons -- have made some light-hearted media appearances in recent weeks as the general election campaign gets underway and the Republican candidate tries to build up a more likable public image.
The five brothers shared some fun facts about their father Wednesday night: Romney loves to sing and may or may not be able to moonwalk. It's not true, they told O'Brien, that the wealthy former governor went to college on a croquet scholarship. They also shared that the Republican candidate loves pranks -- though he doesn't enjoy being pranked.
