China Punks 15: I’m F****ing Dis Pear, Man

Recorded on May 30, 2012

We’re trying something a little different this week and, as with anything new, there’s always room for error (which we never make).  It took about two days after the recording to get everything together.

You’ll notice that Charlie sounds amazing whereas John sounds just as crappy. Also, if you’re really paying attention, you might notice that both John and Charlie seem telepathic, because we are.

Again, welcome everyone from the No Agenda Stream.  You can catch us “live” every Friday at noon EDT (4pm GMT).

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)

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
