What would J. Edgar Hoover have to say about this?

NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman said Monday that, in the wake of his trip to North Korea in February, the FBI wants to use him as an informant.

"I have been contacted by the FBI and I met with them. They wanted to know what went on and who's really in charge in North Korea," Rodman told the Miami Herald. "I have been invited back to North Korea in August and I want to go."

Rodman also had a message for those who think he is being used by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "I'm not a total idiot. I know what Kim Jong Un is threatening to do regarding his military muscle. I hope it doesn't happen because America will take whatever actions to protect America and our allies.

"I do think that we have to talk to people who want to cause us harm so hopefully they won't. I've been talking to folks for years who don't get what I'm about, but that's cool, 'cause once they walk away they like me. I might be able to keep folks' heads cool. We all going to find a way to get along and keep peace."

So, Dennis Rodman, winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize? And then they can just retire the award, because how do you follow Dennis Rodman winning it?
