MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – A petition has started in the hopes of uniting “Marco and Polo once and for all.”

The Change.org petition is seeking to change the name of Tropical Storm Laura to “Polo.” Both Laura and Tropical Storm Marco are churning in the Gulf and expected to impact Louisiana this week.

As of Monday morning, the petition has 3,305 signatures. The goal is to reach 5,000.

“Can we just have ONE funny thing this year?” one commenter posted.
