China Punks 12: Bears, Bats, and One Blind Man

UPDATE:  Audio file is now the entire show.

Recorded on May 2, 2012

On behalf of the China Punks team, we would like sadly inform our loyal listeners that we will be discontinuing our line of “China Punks”-branded cattle, power hungry officials and baby brands.  Due to amazing lack of demand, there’s just no way that we could continue the production of these life-changing products.

Upon looking at our finances, our board of directors has decided, instead, to place what little money we have into a new line of government approved “China Punks” bear-repelling and dissident-beating baseball bats.  They won’t be very useful if you do decide to take a trek into the-middle-of-nowhere Beijing suburbs to test video game consoles.

Nor will they protect you from wizards.

These are poorly-made and low quality products which no one will want.  They aren’t limited edition, won’t come with a certificate of authenticity, and certainly won’t come with a warranty.

Did we mention that they won’t protect you from wizards?

We hope you don’t enjoy them.

Sincerely,

John and Charlie
