Daily WOW: The Holiday Hole

Cards Against Humanity - Fair Use via Youtube

The Daily Catch - published on 11/28/16

Cards Against Humanity, a more raunchy iteration of Apples to Apples, has brought forth the best holiday event we’ve ever seen! The Holiday Hole is an effort by a small team of construction workers to dig a hole for money.

Cards Against Humanity, the maker of the game of the same name, announced last week it would be celebrating Black Friday by digging a giant, pointless hole in the ground. The company named it the Holiday Hole, and said it would dig the hole for as long as people were willing to pay for it. The dig lasted for days and ended on Sunday. Before the dig was stopped, donations began to dwindle, but for more than a week the money piled up, as has all the displaced dirt next to the hole — the location of which Cards Against Humanity has not disclosed. According to the website, the initiative has brought in $100,573.

Cheers to Cards Against Humanity for giving us something to gawk at! We hope that digging a hole for no other reason than getting a hole dug becomes a yearly Black Friday tradition. Since they raised about $100,000 in just a few days, we imagine it will.
