"Somebody suggested flying the opposing team's flag over the dome.  That may be a little bit sacreligious," admitted Walker on 620WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Morning News."

Among others have been "Renaming the dome for a week.  There's some pretty interesting ideas.  There's also the obvious ones like Wisconsin cheese for Chicago pizza."

He has taken more politically-related ones as well: "Funny ones about 'Why don't you but up a bet for higher taxes or lower taxes?' "

He's looking for suggestions from the public through his Twitter account.

"I'd love even more to come back next Monday morning and gloat about how much I'm getting back from Illinois."
