    Default punk

    Dear all,

    What does "punk" mean in:

    [anytime we get to punk Crowley works for us.]

    Unfortunately, the script has no punctuation!

    ** Crowly is the demon. (Has any one kindly watched that episode?)

    I cant choose the most suitable meaning for "punk" here! Is it noun or a verb?
    Thanks.

    Can it mean "burn" by any means?

    Like "Anytime you want us to burn Crowly, we will be ready for that"

    If that's right, then it makes sense.

    Thanks.

    "Punk" can mean to play a trick or "practical joke" on someone.

    It has four main meanings I can think of:

    1. Hoodlum
    2. British Rock played by hoodlum types
    3. Male sex slave in prison; weak prisoner
    4. (v) to trick as Dave indicates

    My son, a former member of a punk group, might have something to say about that!
