Ken Jenning's Big Styrofoam Head.

Jeopardy! uber-champ Ken Jennings [wiki] got a big head made of styrofoam that he doesn't know what to do with! From his blog:

So, like many of you, I’m sure, I have this huge styrofoam version of my head sitting in the garage. It was part of a parade float here in Salt Lake last July, and after the parade they very kindly called me up and asked me if I wanted the huge head. I said yes. What if I said no and then someday I needed a huge styrofoam version of my head? Then I’d feel pretty dumb.

But I have yet to do anything really cool with it. I didn’t knit a huge Santa hat for it and put it on our roof last Christmas. I haven’t been sculpting styrofoam likenesses of Brad Rutter and Jerome Vered so I could make a little Jeopardy! Ultimate Tournament of Champions version of Easter Island in our backyard. Big Ken has just been gathering dust in our garage. But he just keeps smilin’! What a trooper.

And now we’re moving to Seattle. I can’t really see paying the movers to pack it up and bring it with us, but I can’t quite bring myself to throw it away, either.

So what do I do with the Big Ken Head? Discuss here. Best suggestion wins a prize.*

*Note: prize may be a big Ken head. You pay shipping. Offer void where prohibited by law or your mom.

Being a Salt Lake native, I think that it should be memorialized here in town some how. We already have some amazing things here, like the Joseph Smith Sphinx (or all of Gil Gal Gardens for that matter). And the pyramid temple/cryogenic center where you can have your pets saved for the future... A giant Ken Jennings head would not be out of place.
I think he should donate it to the Utah Museum of Fine Art, or some where Downtown in one of the art spaces.
Ken Jennings may be leaving us, but we'll gladly keep his head.
