This is probably not what the White House had in mind when they made petitions searchable on

S.R. of Wilmington, North Carolina has created a petition to make R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” the new National Anthem of the United States.

The petition, posted on, reads as follows:

As of October 3, 2011, petitions that met the listed criteria became searchable on once — and if — they reach 150 signatures within 30 days. If that was accomplished, for President Obama to actively consider a petition, it must have reached 25,000 signatures within the remainder of the same 30-day period.

The White House has always reserved the right to change the time limit and number of signatures required, and did exactly that in the wake of a petition that urged the U.S. government to begin construction on a Death Star to be completed by 2016.

Now a petition must reach 100,000 signatures within 30 days.
