"A petition on seeks to put Philadelphia’s Four Seasons Total Landscaping on the National Register of Historic Places," reports Douglas Perry.

"There is some mockery involved in this effort, but that doesn’t necessarily mean petition signers aren’t serious about seeking the property’s inclusion on the register."

More than 2,500 people signed the online petition as of Perry's writing. As of this writing, the number of signatures had increased to more than 3,000.

In case you missed the story: the Trump campaign booked Four Seasons Total Landscaping in a post-election press conference featuring former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. As Perry notes, the bad mistake of the Trump campaign has become the good fortune of the Four Seasons Total Landscaping business, which has a burgeoning promotional business, including t-shirts, sweatshirts, and masks. The façade of the business has also appeared in countless Zoom backgrounds since the fateful press conference. Even the, um, adult bookstore next door is getting in on the promotional action.
