"Cards Against Humanity," an outrageous and shocking adult board game, is offering a Black Friday deal that you can probably afford to miss: Nothing.

On Friday,the game's website featured an order form offering to pay the company $5 in exchange for nothing. Customers were also asked to check a box to confirm that they understand they are giving the company $5 in exchange for absolutely nothing.

"On Black Friday, everybody is selling something. We’re the only company to offer the superior Black Friday experience of buying nothing," the company posted in a short question and answer section.

The one-day "Give Cards Against Humanity $5 Sale" has raised more than $55,000.

"Because the greatest Black Friday gift of all is buying nothing. We’re offering that for the rock-bottom price of $5. How can you afford NOT to seize this incredible opportunity?" the website reads.

So what does the company plan to do with the thousands of dollars they received? 

"That’s for us to know and you to find out. We’ll make the announcement soon," the company said on their website.

Ridiculous Black Friday "sales" have become somewhat of a tradition for "Cards Against Humanity." Last year, the company pushed $6 boxes of "Bullsh*t" on Black Friday. A few weeks later, customers actually received boxes of dried cow dung.
