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.
