Each year, Cards Against Humanity—the party game known for its irreverence, obscenity, and, occasionally, bigotry—conducts a holiday promotion in the form of a prank, a surprise, or, occasionally, a kindness. This year, rather than send out literal bullshit or pretend to dig a hole through the Earth, the company has made a more ambitious pledge: to stymy Trump’s proposed border wall.

"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 campaign claims. The Department of Homeland Security has already begun invoking eminent domain to secure property for the wall.

In December, contributors will receive "an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of our promise to fight the wall, some new cards and a few other surprises." The campaign sold out in hours, the Washington Post notes.

Prototypes for the border wall are on display in California.
