E64 – A Punch Up Christmas Carol

Twas the night before Christmas,
And all through Podcavern,
Our hosts sat all sullen,
Posted up at the Tavern.

When suddenly SANTA!
All liquored up,
Said ” Punch Up These Carols!”
His slurred speech was fucked up!

So Les, Tuong and Angus,
Each chose a song,
Three new versions were born,
In an ep juuuust over an hour long!

So strap tight for some tales,
With drug deals and Luigi,
You’ll cry so much,
Ya need a damn squeegee!

So put up your stockings,
Tuong by the chimney with care,

Merry Punch Up To All,
Until we’re back on the air!!
