What better way to "liven up the issue of budget cuts" than by bringing a machete into the equation? We knew there was a reason Arnie was made governor, but it seems the people who voted him in have forgotten they gave the job to a show man.

In response to the negative outpouring regarding the video he posted on Twitter (which shows him regarding a large knife for approximately 3 seconds before he puts it down), Schwarzenegger said:

"You know, you sent a governor to Sacramento - not El Stiffo *sniggers*, like some of the past were, but you sent someone that is a little bit more entertaining and has a little bit more fun with the whole thing. Not that I have fun with making the cuts; they sadden me. But fun with the job itself, because I think it is the most rewarding job that I've ever done, even though with a huge responsibility. So just relax and have a little bit of a sense of humour."

Someone give this man a minor movie role, quick. Otherwise there's a high risk that he'll make Maria Shriver get dreads. You know, so he can hunt her down in the back garden.
