As we prep for the weekend, it might be time to get your fill of elementary school playground-worthy jokes out of the way.

Late-night TV host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel has launched a new campaign to become the mayor of Dildo, a small unincorporated area in Newfoundland, that actually doesn’t have a municipal government.

While on Skype with a room full of Dildodians, Kimmel announced he was going to run for mayor of the Canadian region that shares its name with the popular sex toy.

“I would like to officially declare my candidacy to become mayor of Dildo,” said Kimmel. Before starting his campaign, residents of Dildo told the funnyman that he would have to be “screeched in,” a Newfie tradition involving the kissing of a codfish and heroic consumption of a local rum called Screech.

Kimmel obliged and quipped that “Dildo has been living in a drawer on the end table of the side of the bed for far too long.”

Before leaving, the late-night host revealed he had paired the Canadian town with Hollywood as a “sister city” after offering some merchandising tips for the town of Dildo, including some witty shirts, “Dildonuts,” and a children’s book called “Where’s Dildo?”

“I will get things dil-done if it’s the last thing I dil-do!” exclaimed Kimmel to a vibrate vibrant applause from his audience.

“If all goes well, we may permanently move the show there,” joked the comedian as he concluded the segment.

Because, Jimmy Kimmel Live From Dildo certainly has a nice ring to it.
