Cards Against Humanity buys a piece of the U.S. border
Cards Against Humanity is taking aim at President Donald Trump.
The company, known for its off-color card game, said it bought a piece of the border “to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.” One of President Trump’s early campaign promises was to build a wall across the U.S.-Mexico border. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection started testing prototypes in October.
Cards Against Humanity is known for holiday stunts such as its 2016 “Holiday Hole,” a giant hole dug in celebration of “how everything in America is going really well.” While it’s not clear where the land is located, the company said customers who buy a $15 holiday pack will receive “an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of our promise to fight the wall, some new cards and a few other surprises.”
The promotion is limited to the first 150,000 customers , a threshold that was quickly reached. As of Wednesday morning, the $15 Cards Against Humanity “Saves America” pack was sold out.
“It will be fun, it will be weird and if you voted for Trump, you might want to sit this one out,” the company notes on its website.
The game company also said it hired a law firm “specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.”
Have more questions? The vehemently anti-Trump FAQ tackles some of them. For those who want to cancel their order, the company replies, “We’d like to cancel the 2016 election, but neither of us is going to get what we want.”
Asked, “What are you saving America from?,” the company answered, “Injustice, lies, racism, the whole enchilada.”
Cards Against Humanity was born out of a 2010 Kickstarter campaign that raised nearly 400 percent of its goal. Players try to outwit the others by playing a card with a word or phrase that pairs humorously with another card.
