There are petitions online that support thousands of causes, but there are some that are just strange.

Such is the case of an initiative on the portal that seeks to get Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world and founder of Amazon, to buy Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa and eat it.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the petition was created as a joke on Reddit by Kane Powell and has already gathered thousands of signatures.

Among the reasons people support this prank request are some comments like "Tired of waking up to a world where Bezos hasn't consumed the Mona Lisa" and "It would be epic."

Bezos plans to travel into space with his brother on July 20, on a rocket from his company Blue Origin.
