One of many weirdest card video games out there’s known as Playing cards Towards Humanity. The irreverent board recreation was crowdfunded to very large success, however now the makers have determined to tug one of many oddest and most ridiculous stunts ever: apparently, the corporate not desires to make Playing cards Towards Humanity.
The makers of the cardboard recreation despatched out a letter to the followers on the mailing record, telling them that in the course of the Black Friday gross sales rush, as a substitute of discounting Cards Against Humanity the corporate is now promoting Prongles. The salty chips appear like and are named after Pringles, however as a substitute of getting a smiling mustached man on the cylindrical can, there is a rowdy hog with an angle.
The letter goes on to say that Playing cards Towards Humanity is coming to an finish and that the corporate is quitting the video games business. The letter additionally states that it is altering its title to the Prongles Company, the place it is going to be promoting the chips nationwide throughout varied retailers, together with Goal.
If it is a joke it is a nicely performed one as a result of there are folks posting pictures on social media of the ugly hog on the bottle of Prongles sitting on a retailer shelf.
Not solely are folks in a position to purchase Prongles for $three.00 per can, however social media has been scratching their head as to why the canisters of meals are positioned within the toy part?
It began as a form of April Idiot’s joke, however then morphed into one thing extra when the CAH corp determined to disclose that Prongles are, apparently, an actual factor.
And but, it goes even additional. The CAH website has been reworked and now has a horribly catchy theme tune that sounds prefer it got here out of a 1995 business that will air throughout Tiny Toon Adventures and it reveals that there are two flavors of the chips with extra to come back.
The entire thing is a weird thriller that the Prongles Company is trying to de-mystify by blatantly saying that Prongles are a brand new factor and that Playing cards Towards Humanity is now an previous factor that’s no extra.
Proper now it is laborious to inform if that is authentic or if CAH is simply taking part in the lengthy con on trolling. We have seen trolls go to excessive lengths with a purpose to get the final giggle, even when it is not all that humorous. Then once more, final 12 months the corporate additionally did one thing related by digging holes in the ground.
Does this imply that Cards Against Humanity is gone for good? Are Prongles really that nice? Does this imply that 1990s animals with angle are making a comeback? I imply, I suppose we should not be all that shocked on condition that Bubsy had a new game launched this 12 months, a hand-drawn 2D Sonic game got here out this previous summer season, and now a hip, extreme-sports loving hog is on the bundle of a snack meals made by the identical firm who makes card video games. If somebody from the 1990s was in a coma and wakened in the present day, they might in all probability marvel why they’re nonetheless within the 1990s.
