    City Weekly, a paper in Des Moines, Iowa, has picked 25 locals it feels could serve as the state's governor. Ashton Kutcher, an Iowan, was suggested, as was Slipknot percussionist, M. Shawn Crahan, also known as Clown. The paper wrote, "He's smart, thoughtful, creative, and he understands Iowa culture – and what's right and what's wrong about it. He'd be an exciting leader."

    Hey, if The Ultimate Warrior and Jesse the Body Ventura of WWF Fame can enter the political arena, then we're more than certain a member of a nine-headed metal monster like Slipknot could effectively and fairly govern. Look, if Arnold Schwarzenegger as the "Governator" of California didn't shock you, then why should this suggestion?

    Also, big ups to the paper for a creative, viable story! In a day and age when the digital world is sucking up all the content out there, this is a fun and interesting read!

    What musician or celebrity do you think would make a great governor?
