The White House is tired of responding to petitions, and it's no surprise why. After raising the bar on what merits a response, the White House still had to entertain the notion of building a Death Star (which was summarily rejected). That hasn't discouraged these people from trying to get their important issues heard, though, and that's the beautiful thing about democracy. Here are some of the best (worst) petitions to the White House from the month of March:

The petition to release the Declaration of Independence to Nic Cage


Convert at least one (1) National Park into Jurassic Park

Honor the memory of Randy Savage


Demolish a building at Rice University

Change the national anthem to "Ignition (remix)" by R. Kelly, because, why not?

Celebrate White History Month:

Celebrate white people, in general


As you can see, this is a very serious issue
