Cards Against Humanity Made $71,145 By Selling Nothing For $5 On Black Friday
That seems like a steal when you consider I dropped 36 bucks on “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” and pretty much got the same thing.
According to Yahoo! Finance, the geniuses behind the card game Cards Against Humanity upped the ante this year when they continued their protest of Black Friday by literally selling nothing for five bucks a pop.
Sadly – well, unless you’re one of the owners of Cards Against Humanity – there were 14,229 takers.
That’s right, kids. If you hadn’t done so already, you can now safely make the assumption that there are more than 14,000 idiots on this planet thanks to the creators of the uber-popluar card game. Despite the fact that consumers were required to check a box that read “I understand I am paying Cards Against Humanity $5 and receiving nothing in return,” the game makers still pulled in more than $71,000.
And based on the fact that more than 14,000 people were dumb enough to buy nothing for five bucks, you have to think it’s also safe to make the assumption that at least one of those morons ponied up for a second round.
