A recent Change.org petition has called upon Mayor Ginther to build a statue of Columbus native Randy "Macho Man" Savage in downtown Columbus, a ridiculous move which, frankly, is an awesome idea. We suggest dotting the city with statues of many of our famous residents. Here's a good start.

Beverly D'Angelo

The actress who played the long-suffering wife of Chevy Chase's earnest Clark Griswold in National Lampoon's "Vacation" films was born in Columbus. We could even add a button that plays Lindsey Buckingham's "Holiday Road" when you press it!

Jack Hanna

One of the favorite parts of any visit to the Columbus Zoo is taking a picture with the bronze manatee, but our world-famous zoo representative should also get his due.

Bone

Jeff Smith is a living icon in the comics world, but it would be way more cool to have a likeness of his iconic creation, don't you think?

Alex Grey

The visionary psychedelic artist's work was used as the cover art for Nirvana's In Utero, Tool's Lateralus and in the liner notes for the Beastie Boys' Ill Communication. He was also born in Columbus and attended CCAD. And you know that statue would be so rad.

Alex P. Keaton

Michael J. Fox's character from TV's "Family Ties" became a conservative icon, a perfect representation of our swing state status, given how liberal his TV parents were, both on the show and in real life.

Michael Coleman

Yes, we have a new mayor. Yes, he will always be Mayor Coleman to us. Let's put it in stone.

Prescott Bush

The patriarch of the Bush clan spawned two U.S. presidents, but we mostly suggest this for the inevitable political graffiti it would elicit. #FeetheBern

The Predator

There was another famous internet push to erect a statue of RoboCop in Detroit. We propose a statue of Arnold Schwarzenegger's alien nemesis in "Predator," preferably within striking distance of the actual statue of Schwarzenegger outside the Convention Center.

Philip Michael Thomas

Detective Rico Tubbs from Michael Mann's groundbreaking pastel-laden '80s TV series "Miami Vice" is from Columbus? Yep. (Crockett statue not included.)

Freddy Kruger

OK, this one requires some cheating, as "A Nightmare on Elm Street" was set in the fictional town of Springwood, Ohio, which almost certainly inspired by the suburbs of director Wes Craven's hometown, Cleveland. Still, we should steal it, because how freakin' cool would a life-size Freddy Kruger statue be?
