Cards Against Humanity Combats Inhumanity

I was one of the lucky 100,000 to get in on the Cards Against Humanity 12 Days of Bullshit promotion this year. The promotion was $12, and they sent me (or tried to send me) one day for every day leading up to Christmas. Of course, the USPS fucked it up, but hey, CAH tried. […]
