And finally… Party game company trumps Mexico border wall plan with land acquisition

Cards Against Humanity, the self-dubbed “party game for horrible people”, has purchased a plot of land on the US-Mexico border in an effort to protest the development of President Trump’s wall.

While the company said it has no expectations the venture will stop construction, it does think it is a funny way to protest the wall and perhaps cause delays.

Compounding this land purchase is this year’s holiday season marketing campaign: for $15 buyers get six “America saving surprises.” Among these surprises are a map of the land plot just purchased and new cards for the game.

The firm said: “It’s 2017, and the government is being run by a toilet. We have no choice: Cards Against Humanity is going to save America.

“There’s no time for questions—now is the time to act. You give us $15, and we’ll send six America-saving surprises right to your doorstep. It will be fun, it will be weird, and if you voted for Trump, you might want to sit this one out.”

This is not the first time Cards Against Humanity has made an open political statement. This past summer the company launched its “Cards Against Humanity For Her.” The box was pink and, in support of women, the asking price was $5 higher than it normal but the profits made were donated to Emily’s List, a political action committee that strives to put more women into political positions.
