China Punks 23: War Week

Recorded on August 29, 2012

Unfortunately, this week we don’t have any sexy photos or stories of illicit, and perhaps illegal, sexual activity on the mainland.  But we do have something almost better than sex: violence!

That’s right.  We’re in the midst of several different wars, some hot, some cold, online and offline.  Baidu is facing off against Qihoo360 in the online search wars, 360buy is battling everyone except Amazon in ecommerce, and Chinese people are feverish with nationalism and anti-Japanese sentiment over some rocks in the Pacific Ocean.

China Punks 13: Law?! We don’t need no stinkin’ Law!

Recorded on May 16, 2012

Here at China Punks, we like to take your misguided and pre-conceived notions of decency, etiquette, and rule of law and smash them to little bits with our “China Punks Bear and Wizard Deterrent” baseball bats.

So if you’re that guy (or gal) standing in front of the subway (or elevator) doors, get the hell out of our way or the next thing in your face just might be your doom.

If you’re that fat jerk talking smack about our beards, STFU or be the target of the “China Punks” Stare of Death©®™ (deadlier than any Death Star laser, because its real)
