Petition Filed to Have R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)" be the National Anthem

Petition Filed to Have R. Kelly's

Picture this: You are at a football game or a baseball and the announcer comes on and says "Please stand for the National Anthem", but instead of The Star Spangled Banner, R. Kelly starts piping through the loud system!

Well, bad news, it could happen.

Here is the petition that was filed on WhiteHouse.gov asks Obama to change our national anthem:

"We, the undersigned, would like the Obama administration to recognize the need for a new national anthem, one that even a decade after its creation, is still hot and fresh out the kitchen. America has changed since Francis Scott Key penned our current anthem in 1814. Since then, we have realized that after the show, it's the afterparty, and that after the party, it's the hotel lobby, and--perhaps most importantly--that 'round about four, you've got to clear the lobby, at which point it's strongly recommended that you take it to the room and freak somebody. President Obama: we ask you to recognize the evolution of this beautiful country and give us an anthem that better suits the glorious nation we have become."

IF it gets 100,000 signatures (it's very far off, only 673 right now), the President will be legally obligated to at least address it and probably (we hope) reject it.
