People Are Paying Cards Against Humanity To Dig A Hole

2016 was a bit shit, according to the Cards Against Humanity team. To celebrate, they're digging a big hole, and people are paying them to do it.

The idea is pretty simple -- pay $2 for a second of digging. One hero named OneDollar,Bob contributed $1,003 for 601 seconds of glorious dig time.

If you just want to watch it all unfold, it's being live streamed on YouTube.

If you were thinking that there must be more than meets the eye with this stunt, you'd be wrong. In 2014, 30,000 people bought "actual bullshit" from the company for $6. Some even resold theirs on eBay.

The team have also set fans insane ARGs in the past. One saw a group of Redditors unlock a giant safe on an island containing 250,000 Cards Against Humanity cards, a bottle of Loki scotch and a personal square foot of land on the island for anyone who had the safe combination.

But this year it's just about the hole. And that's because, according to the FAQ, the Cards Against Humanity team isn't too thrilled about how the year has gone.

Where is the hole?
America. And in our hearts.

What do I get for contributing money to the hole?
A deeper hole. What else are you going to buy, an iPod?

How am I supposed to feel about this?
You’re supposed to think it’s funny. You might not get it for a while, but some time next year you’ll chuckle quietly to yourself and remember all this business about the hole.
What if you dig so deep you hit hot magma?
At least then we’d feel something.

There's roughly 29 hours left at the time of writing. But the more money people throw down the hole, the bigger it gets.


    I have the names of some people they could bury.. Will donate if they do.

    I don't know why, but I have this on in the background on the TV whilst playing Pokemon.


      I absolutely get this. I kept it on long after I finished writing the story last night, while I was doing other stuff. It was oddly soothing background noise.

    Is there a reason the digger and dumpy drivers are going so slow?

    100k and counting that could have gone to a worthy cause...well done.

      How about that snickers bar your bought that one time? That was about $2. I suppose that could have done to a "worthy" cause, too. How about the last video game you bought?

      Who are you do determine what cause is "worthy" for people to spend their money on?

        Who are YOU "do" determine who can't determine what is determinable?

          I'll do whatever I want do do! There's nothing you can to about it!
