This may very well be one of the most outrageous petitions on the White House’s Petition site. A Petition to name May 20th as “Macho Man Randy Savage Day.”
Macho Man Randy Savage was a national treasure loved by everyone who watched him on television or knew him personally. No matter if you knew him from Slim Jim commercials or his wrestling career, you felt a deep connection with Savage. Tragically, the world lost him on May 20, 2011. This petition is to set aside that day every year as a celebration and remembrance of the Macho Man’s life and to keep his legacy alive for future generations to appreciate and enjoy.
At the time of this post, the petition had 2859 signatures. To get a response from the White House, the petition must get 100,000 signatures by April 4th. Just 97,141 more to go!
Savage died in Florida in May of 2011 after suffering a heart attack while driving, resulting with his car colliding with a tree. Savage was 58 years old at the time he died.
