'Cards Against Humanity' buys borderland to stop Trump's wall

Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans.

"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", the company's website reads.

Along with their border wall plan, for $15, the company is offering to send customers "six surprises", one of which is a map of the land they purchased, as part of their 2017 holiday promotion dubbed "Cards Against Humanity Saves America". As of Tuesday afternoon - hours after the project was announced - more than half of the slots for the project were sold.

Calling the presents "America-saving surprises", Cards Against Humanity promised that the campaign "will be fun, it will be weird" and offered a warning. During the 2016 campaign, the company came out with a "Donald Trump Bug-Out Bag" survival kit, taking aim at the then-candidate.

Stock Jumping Abnormally High: Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc. (HLX)
American International Group Inc. raised its holdings in Helix Energy Solutions Group by 10.8% during the 1st quarter. Cowen and Company updated its forecast on HLX and giving a rating of "Buy" and establishing a price target of $9.00.

Cards Against Humanity harbors no illusions that it'll be able to stop the construction of the wall entirely. Essentially, the company purchased a plot of vacant land on the border of the United States and Mexico, making it extremely hard for Trump to build his expensive border wall which the US taxpayers will inevitably pay for.

The company has built a cult following around its out-of-the-ordinary holiday promotions. Three years ago, the company bought a private island off the coast of ME, dubbed it Hawaii 2, and gave 250,000 customers a license to visit. In the promotional material for the humorous card game's holiday promotion, "Cards Against Humanity Saves America", the folks behind the game make their political views abundantly clear.

In 2015, the "Give Cards Against Humanity $5 Sale" raked in more than $71,000 by selling literally "nothing" for $5 and distributing the haul among employees who spent it on a variety of hilarious purchases that included a suit of armor, several trips and thousands of dollars in charitable donations.

"We're just being regular correct", the company said.
