What started as a prank with a young man asking Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz to sign his "economic textbook" ended with a serious lesson from the Texas senator, once he realized it was the Communist Manifesto the prankster was holding.

"You know what, I'll sign it," Cruz told the young man, who said the candidate has a "good sense of humor."

Inside the front cover, Cruz wrote, "Millions have suffered because of this."

After the 30-second exchange, reporters shared the moment on Twitter, and Cruz's inscription is going viral.

"Still not a fan of Ted Cruz, but this is pretty good," one Twitter user said. While another commented that Cruz's response was "perfect."

A common refrain among many was simply: "He's not wrong."

This comes the day after Cruz sought to build momentum toward his campaign by announcing early that his running mate would be former GOP rival Carly Fiorina, if he earns the Republican nomination this summer.
