We now live in a world where people can start petitions and raise money online for anything. Anything. Fundraiser to make potato salad? Yes. Petition to make Beyoncé comb her daughter's hair? Sure. Ask the White House to deport Justin Bieber? Oh, yeah. But we're actually on board with that last one.

Online petitions are a great way to raise awareness for your cause and help spread the word if there is an injustice happening in your area.

Or sometimes you really hate sporks and want to do something about it.

We cruised the Interwebs and found 18 completely useless online petitions, and yes, most of them have actual signatures supporting the cause. And hey, if you're into the petition, we've provided the links so you can sign it yourselves. We may have already signed the Pudding Pops one.
