Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a while back that in 2017, he was going to make it a personal challenge to travel to all 50 states and “talk to more people about how they’re living, working and thinking about the future.”

On Friday night, Zuckerberg dropped in for a surprise dinner with the Moore family in Newton Falls, Ohio. The more cynical among us believe he’s laying the groundwork for a run for office, but he claims he just wants to get out more and meet some regular folks.

Speaking of running for president, Zuckerberg, who just visited Madison, Wisc., might be on to something with this whole “visit all 50 states” strategy.

Hello, 911? Someone out hiking in the woods near Chappaqua just got burned pretty badly.

The guy will eat as many brats as it takes to win over the hearts and minds of Wisconsonites. On that note, he’d better order a few more.

On the plus side, he has plenty of time to visit Iowa and work on his “I love deep-fried corn dogs!” face before 2020 rolls around.
