Kid1: Dude, I am so punk because I wear
a Good Charlotte hoodie
, a mesh trucker hat
that I bought at the mall and have every Blink
182 CD, including the bootlegs.
Kid2: No, that makes

Kid2: In the words of Jello: "Punk ain't no religious cult,punk means
thinking for yourself. You ain't hardcore cause
your hair, when a jock
still lives inside your head."
To paraphrase: Mall punks, mall punks, mall punks.....fuck off!
