In bizarre news of the day,the U.S. Department of State of has named Andrew W.K.the Cultural Ambassador to the Middle East.

"This is a tremendous invitation,"W.K. said in a statement on his website."I'm very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I've never been before. And I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!"

The performer's website reports that W.K. will visit the Middle East "to promote partying and positive power." The story also explains that "Andrew will begin his journey the first week of December, 2012 and will visit elementary schools, the University of Bahrain, music venues, and more, all while promoting partying and world peace."

Born Andrew Wilkes-Krier,the entertainer is known for his love of partying.W.K. once told HuffPost his personal tag line would be, "I'm not here to impress you, I'm here to party with you."

I just want to put this out there: This clown doesn't represent me. If you want to blow him up with an IED, or VBED, I'm fine with that.

He might be a clown but he seems harmless. I don't see why such hostility is warranted. It's not like he picked himself to be "Cultural Ambassador" some idiot in washington probably did.
