In order to mock political correctness, a satirical petition is calling for the restaurant Cracker Barrel to change its name to “Caucasian Barrel.”

Ryan Koch, the creator of the viral petition, writes the name “Cracker Barrel” should be changed because it uses “an offensive slur” which “mocks our long and proud heritage.

He continues,

The name is offensive, their logo stereotypes European Americans as people who sit on chairs and lean against what appears to be a bourbon barrel, claiming we are all a bunch of alcoholics. Sure, they’ll SAY it’s a ‘cracker’ barrel but everyone knows crackers don’t come in barrels, they come in bags and boxes!

To drive the point home, throughout the petition, the word “Cracker” is written as “C****er” in order to portray the word as profane.
