What happened to OINK!? OINK!’s live comedy variety is on an extended hiatus so that I can keep eating. It was an amazing ride. Oinkshow.com is now the new home of HAM.radio™ an (at least) weekly podcast hopefully starting by 2011’s end. Stay tuned!
I’m a poor student, but I love to laugh and could really use a mid-week escape, any way you can hook me up? Consider it done. OINK! guests with a valid student ID get in for just $7.
