Cards Against Humanity is hiring a CEO, but it requires candidates to be Barack Obama

Since creating its namesake party game (and a chance for moms everywhere to ask what “bukkake” means), Cards Against Humanity has blossomed into a charitable, inclusive organization that’s raised nearly $5 million for nonprofits and high-poverty classrooms across the U.S. That said, the company isn’t without its faults, which it addresses in a new job posting on Craigslist.

It reads:

Cards Against Humanity, the #1 best-selling party game, is hiring a new CEO!

Let’s face it: we have no idea what we’re doing. This year, we wasted an enormous amount of time and energy trying to get Hillary Clinton elected President, and on Black Friday we dug a huge hole in the ground because we wanted to find out if it would be funny. It’s been a great run, but now it’s time for real adult leadership.


Sounds like an exciting opportunity, right? Especially once you factor in the perks, which include “generous vacation time,” “a new computer,” and “access to office pantry with unlimited almonds.” Well, before you start punching up that resume, it might be wise to read the requirements.

Sure, you might have “strong public speaking skills,” a “steady disposition,” and a willingness to “inherit the consequences of eight years of irresponsible spending,” but do you have “experience hunting terrorist masterminds”? Or a ”minimum eight years experience as President of the United States of America or equivalent nation”? Also, Cards Against Humanity would really like it if you were the first black editor of Harvard Law Review.

Despite the fact that women and minorities are “strongly encouraged to apply,” it’s astonishingly clear that Cards Against Humanity will only consider former President Barack Obama for the position. Here’s hoping he, like every other unemployed person, reads Craigslist.
