‘Nonpartisan Uno’ Cards Now Available for Easily Triggered People

Legal Insurrection – by Mary Chastain

Give. Me. A Break.

Mattel took out the red and blue colors in Uno to help those sensitive and easily triggered people avoid political debates at Thanksgiving.

It also introduced a “veto” card a player can use on someone who brought up politics during the game. 

The company changed the package to purple from red. The package still shows a red card, though.

Then it replaced the red and blue cards with purple and orange. Mattel kept yellow, even though the Libertarian Party usually uses that color. Then again no one listens to us libertarians, amirite? (See, I can make fun of myself because I’m not a snowflake)

The veto card has a black background and a white stripe across the middle with POLITICS over the white line. But they use a red sign to cross out the word!

Odd. For the longest time, I was the only leftist in my family. We did just fine. Now I’m a libertarian and we’re still just fine. Somehow my father and I still manage to talk politics in a civil and polite manner.

Who gets triggered when they see the color blue or red? Anybody? It reminds me of South Park’s first Christmas special. The whole town complained about everything, which led the kids to perform a bleak dance number dressed in gray.

    What’s next, Class-friendly Monopoly so as not to trigger the impoverished? Sugar-free CandyLand to accommodate diabetics? Scrabble sans any letters whose shape might resemble a white male? Playing cards (King, Queen, Jack) with tranny royalty? Will anything not be altered to appease and satisfy the demands of the horribly-compromised human?

    We need a national day in honor of the virtues of offending, one that celebrates its role in making us who we are, making us authentic. One that shows how offending toughens us up, prepares us for challenges, trains us in cultivating appropriate responses. And best of all… sometimes offending is great fun, mostly when its extremely necessary. They used to say, “Call a spade a spade.” I bet that’s not allowed anymore, but unless we call ’em as we see ’em we are false.

    NATIONAL OFFENDING DAY: SAY ANYTHING YOU WANT TO ANYONE. Think it’ll fly?
