Sadly, probably not a joke...it doesn't take too many "impulse apps" to rack up those kinds of inquiries
Who are we talking about? It wouldn't be too hard for someone to have 60 cards with low CLs and loose approval criteria.
Even 60 travel cards wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for a highly sophisticated bonus hunter. I think djrez4 had like 40, so 50% beyond that isn't unreasonable.
Then again, some issuers have become more sensitive to new accounts, inquiries, MS, and churning. Having 60 useful cards open simultaneously may be a thing of the past.
