"Ready for dinner"
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
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?
