On Monday, the creators of Cards Against Humanity, the cult “party game for horrible people,” announced, then promptly sold out of a House Of Cards-themed expansion pack in advance of today’s second season premiere. But don’t worry, you can still download and print out your own versions, as there’s some pretty great ones in there. “Forcing a handjob on a dying man,” and “Strangling a dog to make a point to the audience” are some particular standouts.
Even better, the folks at Cards Against Humanity gave the $50,000 Netflix paid them for the cross-promotion to the Sunlight Foundation, a thematically appropriate non-profit group dedicated to government accountability and transparency. This isn't the first, or even the second time that Cards Against Humanity has given large sums of money to nonprofits, but this is the only time it seems to have been done out of spite. (Read about the whole thing over at Cards Against Humanity’s blog, where it’s revealed, among other things, that the folks at Netflix apparently fear being associated with adult diapers.)
