People literally bought a load of crap on Black Friday
On Black Friday, there was a lot of muttering about people buying crap they didn't need. Well, it turns out that you didn't know how literal you were being as, in America, 30,000 people bought actual faeces in a box.
They bought it from the people who brought the world the game, Cards Against Humanity, who said that for $6, you could have 'actual bullshit'.
Now, online, lots of people assumed that this was all a big wheeze and that there might be a new game in the offing or maybe something collectible and fun. However, those that parted with their money soon found that they'd spent cash on a box with some poo in it.
Even though the game's creator Max Temkin repeatedly tweeted that the thing being sent out was literally some dung in a box, people still weren't convinced. And the boxes of poo sold out . 30,000 cardboard boxes with excrement in it. Bought with money.
And there's a lovely video of someone doing a box opening, which shows a box with something akin to the poo emoji (as seen above) and a wrapped box that says 'Bullshit' on it. And inside, lo and behold, something that fell out of a bovine's arse.
That'd be Cards Against Humanity earning $180,000 from selling actual bullshit. Where there's muck, there's brass.
