Music fans start U.N. petition to stop Phil Collins' return



In what has to be the most idiotic use of the Internet since … well, ever, has a new "petition to the United States" titled "Phil Collins must be stopped."

The former Genesis front-turned-solo artist recently announced he was returning to making music for the first time since 2002 and will tour again for the first time since 2007. The singer's nagging health and drama with ex-wives had kept him sidelined recently.

The petition reads: "Phil Collins has announced he is 'no longer in retirement.' There is far too much suffering in the world as it is. This must be stopped."

The petition has about 500 supporters so far.

Among the more amusing comments is this one: "I struggled for years with addiction to Phil Collins' music. Just take a look at me now."
