    Really? Kim has left her TV reality show to become head of the World Bank? I never used to care about the World Bank but I'm going to open an account there now. Do I get a free movie with my new checking account?*

    *minimum size may apply. You know after the Ray J and Kanye thing she doesn't take just any size deposit.

    I pick Kim for head. Or doggie. Or reverse cowgirl. Or anything else we think of.
