    If you’ve ever played “Cards Against Humanity” and thought to yourself that you were funny enough to create jokes for the game, then you could get your opportunity to shine.

    This week, the company announced that they would be hiring new writers and paying them $40-an-hour to compose jokes and to help them expand their offering of cards.

    Applicants are instructed to send their best fifteen white cards, which serve as the answer cards in the game, and their best five black cards, which serve as the questions, to the company.

    Submissions are due by Aug. 31, according to the company, and while it’s unclear how often writers will be called upon, the job seems like it’s too good to pass up.

    This isn’t the first time that the “Cards” group has done something off the wall. They temporarily bought naming rights to Silver Cross Field in Joliet, gave $1,000 to 100 different people to “redistribute wealth,” and bought a chunk of land along the U.S.-Mexico border to make it more difficult for the Trump administration to construct a proposed wall.
