'Cards Against Humanity' Trolled Black Friday in the Best Way Possible

On Friday, the company behind the brilliantly twisted, satirical card game Cards Against Humanity sent a special Black Friday update to its social media and email subscribers. While fans may have expected a Black Friday deal — or even a holiday-themed iteration of the popular card game — they got something juicier instead.

"To help you experience the ultimate savings on Cards Against Humanity this Black Friday, we've removed the game from our store, making it impossible to purchase," the card maker's update read.

Which actually came with a sales spike:


God bless you, Cards Against Humanity. You're the card game this world needs right now.
