What Do Steve Jobs, Brutal Dictators, and Japanese Porn Stars Have in Common? Playing Cards.

That's because the folks at Chinese playing card company HCG churn out an array of cards featuring, not only the movers and shakers of modern history, but also those who move and shake in Japanese skin flicks.


The company's most recent decks include Steve Jobs, Muammar Gaddafi, Osama Bin Laden, and Japanese porn stars like Aoi Sola and Maria Ozawa.

While not all the sets featured on HCG's website have English explanations (Aoi Sola and Maria Ozawa, for example, do not), some of the decks do.

Here's how HCG describes Steve Jobs:

Create trillion value, 270000000 iPod, 100000000 iPhone, 10000000 iPad, 100 times the price increase, the 11 classic products, 8 years of resistance, the 2 operation, 1 legends! Not everyone can like him to create a miracle in the world, the death of Jobs, the God is jealous of his talent,just as he had the same clothes, his personal independence of conduct discard the classics and rebel against orthodoxy follow intuition of innovation management of subversion that changed the world. Instead of saying that he is an entrepreneur, be inferior to saying is philosopher, artist, his life all, Zen very transparent, unique, he found the dialogue with the world the secret passage, this poker collection precious pictures 54 of Jobs, tells the story of the master of the legend in his lifetime,to miss him forever.

And Gaddafi:

In some people's eyes, he is "lucky star"," national hero"," leader of the revolution"; while in other people's eyes, he is a "madman", "Lunatic", "a supporter of terrorism". But no matter what his supporters and opponents, had to admit this fact: Al-qaddafi led the has a population of about six million people in the country out of poverty. Al-qaddafi opposed the luxury, oneself to live a simple life, a non-smoker, two do not drink, but the data shows, whose own children are involved in oil, hotels, media, communication, social infrastructure industry, earning a lot of money. This poker includes Al-qaddafi's private photos 54 side, to show you the get both praise and blame, controversial figure portrait of life, have great value for collection.

Playing cards with adult images are almost as old as playing cards themselves. Likewise, playing cards with villains like Gaddafi are nothing new, either (heck, the US military already had them). But playing cards with tech savvy moguls like Steve Jobs? Can't wait to for the Bill Gates deck, which will inevitably borrow elements of the Jobs' cards.

Note: the Aoi Sola card set in the above gallery might contain NSFW images.
