I’ve been wondering lately when exactly boobs became sexualized.

They’re not sex organs and their sole purpose—feeding babies—is so very not at all sexy time.

And yet here we are, looking at boobs.

We’re such odd creatures, humans.

They’re mesmerizing, aren’t they?

Cards Against Humanity, Skydiver Expansion Pack

Blue Skies Mag's expansion pack - black cards - for Cards Against Humanity.

Issue #48 seemed like just yesterday, didn’t it?

I mean, it really could have been just the other day. Time flies when you’re having fun, so there’s really a great reason why I haven’t posted the thing I said I would in that issue. It’s a great reason. I haven’t quite been able to articulate it yet, but I’m sure it’ll come to me.

So in that great and very recent issue, we had a skydiver expansion pack for the game Cards Against Humanity. [If you haven’t played yet, go to www.CardsAgainstHumanity.com and buy a pack ($25) or download it (free!).]

From their own mouths: “Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends. The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card.”

Here, in digital format, finally, is the official Blue Skies Mag Skydiver Expansion Pack. Cut out and laminate if you like, and add them to your deck for even more totally wrong fun. There are blank cards to add your own cards, too. Click each image for a printable pdf.

Post your best hands or custom cards here in the comments, or email them to me at lara@blueskiesmag.com!

Melanie Curtis Grillet, Highcomms.com, and Jorge Alonso started it with one at Skydive Carolina. As if there’s any other way for these things to start.
