Back in January, the creators of your family’s favorite zany/offensive/tiring party game, Cards Against Humanity, hid a bunch of boxes around Milwaukee. Now, approximately two months later, they’re urging fans to send a bunch of potatoes to the Milwaukee office of Sen. Ron Johnson. Welcome to 2017.
Why Sen. Johnson? Cards Against Humanity co-creator Max Temkin explains:
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) is refusing to hold a town hall meeting with his constituents. When one of his voters, a Vietnam veteran, called his office asking for a town hall, Johnson sent him a cease and desist letter.
Legally, we’re not allowed to call Senator Johnson a cruel idiot who doesn’t understand how health insurance works. But we are allowed to mail thousands of potatoes to his office demanding that he listen to his constituents and hold a town hall meeting.
For only $5, you can send a potato with your name on it to Senator Ron Johnson’s office demanding that he hold a town hall meeting.
Following a link to send Johnson your very own potato, Temkin continues:
If the Affordable Care Act is repealed, 431,000 people will lose their health insurance in Wisconsin, nearly 10,000 jobs will be destroyed, and the state will lose over a billion dollars in federal healthcare funding.
Senator Johnson, we are represented by counsel at Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard, and you can address your cease and desist letter to: Cards Against Humanity, 1917 N. Elston, Chicago, Il, 60642. See you in court, bitch.
Why potatoes? Who knows, but it’s definitely different (and funnier?) than Temkin’s original idea: flooding Johnson’s office with pork rectums. Again, welcome to 2017.
