When Cards Against Humanity says they're selling 'bullshit,' they mean it

New, 20 comments

Listen up, team: When Cards Against Humanity says it is selling you bullshit, take that at face value.

On Black Friday, the party game deviants swapped out their online storefront with a promotion offering "a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy some new bullshit." That meant actual bovine crap, as tumblr user veggiebit quickly discovered.

Here's his email to Cards Against Humanity. Polygon reached out to CAH which, untrustworthy as they are, swore this email exchange is 100 percent legitimate.

Here's CAH's reply:

cah bullshit email

CAH is curating a greatest-hits of buyer's remorse, you can read loads more here. Look, they warned you. Here is the FAQ from the Black Friday prank:

Are you selling any of your normal products today? No.

Is this actually poop? Yes.

Is it also something that's not poop? No.

Can I return it when I realize that it's actually just poop? No.

Is the poop dangerous? No. The poop is sterilized.

Is it legal to mail poop? Only one way to be sure.

Why is the poop only $6? Through the magic of incredible Black Friday super-savings.

Cards Against Humanity's cow-shit bargain was good for one day only. They're back to selling the "Ten Days or Whatever of Kwanzaa" bullshit (not literal) that was announced in early November.

This kind of stunt isn't new. Last year, in the spirit of crass consumerism, CAH jacked up its prices $5 on Black Friday. People still bought the game and its expansions at inflated prices.

Past prank/promotions have involved oatmeal and coal."Our bank hates us so much," a Cards Against Humanity representative told Polygon. "I swear. Every time we order a very large quantity of something weird ... they call us and make sure our bank accounts haven't been hacked."

The shit in question "comes from a Texas cow/bull ranch we found on the Internet!" the rep added.

"The rancher is really nice. She sells poo."
