And my wife says I have no future playing games. Suspect

19 year-old gamer becomes mayor of Oklahoma town
Teen goes from zoning out to zoning laws


Like any red-blooded American teenager, John Tyler Hammons digs rock music, fast cars, video games and...fiscal planning?

Apparently so. The AP reports that the University of Oklahoma freshman trounced 70 year-old Hershel McBride to become the mayor of Muskogee, Oklahoma, making it the first city in the nation to be governed by a self-admitted gamer.

But while he could own any of his peers at Halo 3, the fresh-faced leader is turning his sights on cleaning up the town's politics by establishing an independent ethics commission and locking down campaign finance reporting.

"I'm sure the (city) council will work with me on these issues," he said. "I campaigned on this, and this is something I intend to push."

Tired of the same old political shenanigans, the townsfolk are backing their new man.

"He doesn't have the baggage. He doesn't owe anybody anything," said cafe owner Gary Armstrong. "It's sort of a fresh start for Muskogee."

Best known as the subject of country legend Merle Haggard's 1969 hit "Okie from Muskogee," the unassuming city of 38,000 is considered the archetype of virtuous, small town America, a "place where even squares can have a ball."

And now, so can gamers

its not a joke its just a witty observation that a young person who happens to be a fan of video games was elected to be in control of a city in oklahoma. and that because of his hobbies hes probly gonna order a very good computer for his office at the taxpayers expense. "and that he also was on the gameshow are you smarter then a fifth grader"
where the contestants are asked a series of questions ranging in difficulty from the grade 1 to grade 5 curriculum and if you answer all the questions you win a million dollars. and if you lose you must tell the whole world you are not smarter then a fifth grader. and this young aspiring mayor of a city who just graduated high school is not smarter then a fifth grader

hope that clears it up
