One of the highlights so far of Conan O’Brien’s four-night residency at the Chicago Theatre has been the unveiling of his generous gift to the city: a 17-foot, painstakingly crafted bobblehead of himself. But where should it reside?

Throughout the week, the clown prince of TBS late night is asking for suggestions at and via Twitter (hashtag #cocobobble). Here are some locations folks have come up with so far.

† On top of Willis Tower.

† At Lollapalooza.

† In place of the recently removed Marilyn Monroe statue off Michigan Avenue. (This one’s pretty popular.)

† At police headquarters.

† Just off Navy Pier “at the bottom of Lake Michigan.”

† Guiding planes in on the tarmac at Midway airport.

† Outside Wrigley Field, between the statues of Ron Santo and Billy Williams.

† The White Castle parking lot in Hyde Park.

† In place of a lighthouse on the lakeshore.

† “On my fourth wife!”
