One of the things the Obama administration instituted during its first term was a "We the People" website, where anyone can set up a petition. The administration promised that any petition garnering more than 25,000 signatures would get an official response. Well, someone put up a petition to build a Death Star.

It got 34,000 signatures.

The administration has responded.

The title of the official response? "This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For." And it just gets better, including an estimate from the Office of Management and Budget on the cost of construction. I'm laughing so hard I'm crying at this, and the best part is that it's TRUE :D

I like how the Obama administration has a healthy number of nerds in its ranks.

Silly fangurl, that's because the death star has already been built.

You know the White House comm officers were falling all over each other to get the assignment to write the response.

I would have been.
