November 3, 1998

On This Date in TWISTED-HISTORY!  in 1998, Minnesota voters elected Jesse “The Body” Ventura, a former pro wrestler as their governor. The states of Alabama, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Louisiana promptly had new elections and tried to elect Ric “Nature Boy” Flair, Dale Earnhardt, Hulk Hogan, and Walker “Texas” Ranger as their governors. The US Supreme Court said that since those states already had governors, they just couldn’t un-elect when they learned that they might be able to get a cartoon character as governor. If that was the case, then Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny would already be President. Zell Miller, the governor of Georgia, said that if any of those pretty boy galoots tried governing in his state, he’d fill’em full of holes.
