Over a year ago, just as we were on the verge of removing a nonsensical and poorly performing card I’d written for Cards Against Humanity back before we knew how to write well, “Swooping” took on a new significance thanks to Urban Dictionary. I found the card safeguarded by a self-referential paradox further guaranteed by its cultural dissemination: the more people were confused by “Swooping,” the more people looked it up on Urban Dictionary and upvoted it in an effort to make sense of the card.
In the spirit of giving this holiday season, please help me keep this mediocre card in the game by continuing to upvote it. Thank you for your time, and long live the Paradox.
