Trolls gonna Troll

dummies gonna dumb

Cards Against Humanity is still trolling, [They] are buying up acres of land along the U.S.-Mexico border and offering a small share of it in a holiday promotion. For just 15 bucks, people will get a piece of the land, and five or six other “America-saving” gifts for taking part in the promotion that will keep “their brand relevant” for another year. 

…over a hundred thousand shares have already been sold in a few hours. Yay, Capitalism?!

oooooo…. snark.

Here’s their official manifesto:

“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. On Day 1, all Cards Against Humanity Saves America recipients will get an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of our promise to fight the wall, some new cards, and a few other surprises.”

Nice reframe. …if one is completely bereft of the capacity of Reality Testing.

moar from their FAQ here

ARE THESE SURPRISES GOING TO EMBARRASS ME OR THE PERSON WHO’S GETTING THEM?
The surprises contain no sexual content, graphic violence, or footage of Donald Trump watching Russian prostitutes urinate on a bed Obama slept in. They do have some naughty words, though. 

IS CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY BEING POLITICALLY CORRECT NOW?
We’re just being regular correct.

In case you’re unfamiliar, here are the cards from the original game. One player reads the black card [at the bottom of the page] and the others choose one they think will match best [be funniest] from the white cards in their hands. It is hilarious and I’ve enjoyed playing with family in the late hours after T’giving or Xmas. Maybe not so much anymore now I know the company is made up of Ignoratti.

    Since they’ve publicly articulated the reason they bought the property (or committed fraud on the parcel-holders), a gov’t lawyer is prob’ly gonna steamroll ‘em at the eminent domain hearing.

    By the way, if you’ve ever been to the Jack Daniel’s distillery, you’ve seen the inner courtyard which is divided into tiny plots owned by Tennessee Squires. I’m guessin’ a square inch or so.

    A big wall with a gap in the middle. Through which invaders will pass. Isn’t that known as a kill zone?

    Ed beat me to it. Just line up some guns on the sides and start dropping them when they cross. You don’t have to kill anyone. nail the first couple in the legs and the rest will run.

    I hear that the drug smugglers are using “bazookas” to fire packages across the border. Why not a trebuchet? It would be more cost effective.
    I’ll take a few acres near the California/ Nevada border as a spec on future beach front.

    Oopsy! Guess I would be screwed on that deal, unless the wall makes a sharp right at the western border of Arizona.
    Something to be said for that idea…

    ^6: Eventually we’re gonna need that Colorado River Wall, we might as well include it in the original specs. As to buying property on the border to stop the wall, I guess these morons haven’t been paying attention. The government plans to steamroll property owners who currently own land on the Mexico border and build the wall, even if it means that large portions of their land might end up on the wrong side of said wall.

    If Cards Against (Fill In The Blank) has already bought property on the border, chances are some former land owner is laughing all the way to the bank.

    One last thing: who knows more about being on the losing end of Eminent Domain than folks out here in the West?
