This actually reminds me of the last time I went through the petition list and there was one to get a statue of Master Chief for the White House lawn. Also there's this gem.

On a serious note, the petition system has been a bit of a joke recently due to people using it to oversimplify complicated situations. At any given time there are multiple petitions telling the President to resign, at least one demanding that the US be broken up in some way (secession, dissolving, etc.), and even some that tell the members of Congress to vote in favor of something that would hurt them (taking big money out of politics, cutting their health benefits, cutting their pay, etc.). The petitions that are reasonable, which usually have to do with calling for presidential pardons, usually don't even get the required number of signatures because they aren't buzz word topics.
