The people at Cards Against Humanity are back with another impossible-to-ignore holiday promotion. In case you thought they couldn’t top the Holiday Hole of 2016, now they’re touting “Cards Against Humanity Stops The Wall.”
The makers of the card game bought a plot of land on the U.S.-Mexico border to take a stand against President Trump’s plan to build a “700 to 900 mile” border wall. Or as they put it:
“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.”
There’s no real proof here the makers of the “party game for horrible people” actually bought the plot of land, but for $15 they promise to send you an illustration of this piece of land as well as five other “surprises” through the month of December. No, they won’t tell you what those gifts are because “the nature of a surprise is that it surprises you.”
There are eight border wall prototypes up in San Diego and all will undergo rigorous testing to make sure that no one can get around them. FOX 11’s Gina Silva reports.
You don’t usually expect a game company to weigh in on politics, but Cards Against Humanity has never been mistaken for Milton Bradley. Being a little outrageous has always been their m.o.
And if people don’t like that they’re weighing into politics, well they have a very choice response in the FAQ section of their announcement, where they also have a few words for those who may want to cancel their order:
“We’d like to cancel the 2016 election, but neither of us is going to get what we want.”
