An attempted and clever-in-theory petition campaign by the National Republican Congressional Committee to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was thwarted by the internet doing what the internet does best: taking the piss out of everything and being anonymous and plentiful with it.

The NRCC invited the public to “sign” a petition calling for the repeal of the dreaded “Obamacare” and then the petitioners could watch their petition print out via the printer livestream cam. Because not why not waste a shitload of paper in the process too? Yea, Republicans!

You can also watch some footage of the printer right before the NRCC realized what a terrible mistake they made in putting their trust in the citizenry of teh interwebz  to not make boner jokes.

And this person made a best-of imgur gallery.

I admit it. I signed this petition.
You can catch me @ 3:27 of that video, Butty McButterButt.
