Cards Against Humanity, known as "a party game for awful people", has done holiday promotions in the past, including previous year when they dug a hole to nowhere.

The company announced its effort on Twitter and an official website called "Cards Against Humanity Saves America".

For $15, fans can sign up to receive six mystery gifts in the mail during the month of December, the company said in a release.

Cards Against Humanity has a history of performing odd holiday and Black Friday stunts.

Cards Against Humanity claimed it purchased a piece of land in Mexico to make it harder for President Trump to build a complete border wall.

"Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans", the site reads. Essentially, the company purchased a plot of vacant land on the border of the United States and Mexico, making it extremely hard for Trump to build his expensive border wall which the US taxpayers will inevitably pay for.

Along with their border wall plan, for $15, the company is offering to send customers "six surprises", one of which is a map of the land they purchased, as part of their 2017 holiday promotion dubbed "Cards Against Humanity Saves America". "He is so afraid that he wants to build a $20 billion wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing", they say on the website.

As for whether the game is suddenly switch gears to become "politically correct now", the company insists, "we're just being regular correct". Last year, for example, it raised more than $100,000 in donations to finance the digging of a massive hole in the middle of nowhere, for no reason.

Cards Against Humanity is well-known for its absurdist holiday campaigns, which it began in 2012 with a pay-what-you-want expansion pack.

This time around, Cards Against Humanity said it's limiting the holiday promotion to 150,000 participants to join in saving America from "injustice, lies, racism, the whole enchilada".
