This will sound like a joke, but there's a very real petition to sell Montana to Canada to help pay off national debt.

You really do need to read the Change.org petition for yourself. It's quite entertaining. It was created by a Ian Hammond two days ago. This is their description, not mine:

We have too much debt and Montana is useless. Just tell them it has beavers or something.

OK then. As snarky as that sounds, you might be surprised to know that many Montana people are signing the petition and supporting Ian's cause. Michelle Erb commented that she was one of them.

The Chive shared some rather hilarious tweets in response to this petition. Several include the typical "Montana isn't real" type of comments. One person said they never liked Hannah Montana anyway. Well played.

Feel free to laugh this off, but the petition has already nearly reached its goal of 5,000 signatures last time I checked.
