3) 50 Cent calls for Diddy to stop using the Notorious B.I.G.’s name
Enough is enough served as the theme for an apparently frustrated 50 Cent’s petition for Diddy to stop using Biggie Smalls' “name for profit.” With over 700 signatures, Fiddy said, “Let Diddy know to let B.I.G Rest In Peace. When was the last time Diddy really was ‘biggin’ up his brother,’ not bigging up his bank account.” This request didn’t come through, but 50 should’ve known that because when does Diddy take orders from people who aren’t Diddy?

4) Ernie and Bert to join in holy matrimony
Rumors have always swirled on Sesame Street about whether or not Bert and Ernie should marry and make their apparent union official. As a result, petitioners saw this as an opportunity to educate young viewers on acceptance and respect and created a petition for the show to write this into the script. However, the two puppets didn’t exchange vows on television and remain just BFFs.

7) Petition to boycott Shawty Lo’s baby-mama reality TV show
When a snippet of the ATL rapper’s show All My Babies’ Mamas circulated the net, people couldn’t figure out if it was a serious show or just a lost tape somewhere in reality TV boardrooms. Before a statement from the possible show’s network Oxygen was released, a petition started by Sabrina Lamb called for the show to not be aired because it “demeans black children, women and stereotypes black men!” The petition worked -- the show will not see the reality television light of day.

5) President Obama to remove Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones
Once your team endures mishaps every game day, you can’t only blame the players and the coach, but the whole franchise, right? Cowboys fan Steven M. did just that and took his petition to remove owner Jerry Jones straight to White House’s website. America’s football team received more than 4,000 signatures to remove Jerry Jones, but was later taken down from the site. He still remains in his position, so look out for him next season, Steven M.

9) Dwight Howard to ditch his L.A. Lakers headband
This petition called for Howard to stop wearing his headband on game days because, and this isn’t a joke, “it looks ridiculous.” The briefly detailed petition failed to reach its point, as Howard didn’t adhere to this fan’s requirement. He should be happy the 6’11 center doesn’t wear that itty-bitty Superman cape on game days.

10) All of the “We The People” petitions
So who is down for unicorns and lollipops, a possible nuclear war and the legalization of crystal weed to ease the stress of a World War III? A few people thought these petitions on the White House’s site “We The People” were bright ideas, you know, to make our country better. President Obama and staff have some sense, so these requests didn’t work, although you can smoke weed (illegally), lollipops are still at a respectable price, you can catch unicorns in cartoon shows, but a nuclear war is still realistic (North Korea, stop testing).
