The Aristocrats[edit]

while being quite irrelevant discussing The Aristocrats explicitly in this article, what is being said here is also dubious. the aristocrats' punchline did in fact inflict loughter to many first listening to it (which is also documented in that movie) and in anyway, it's not such an important reference to deserve inclusion in this article. there are million other examples that could be used as examples of the use of punchline or not.

   Agreed, it's irrelevant and should be removed. 204.187.34.100 01:04, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

punchline for father's day[edit]

Bold text== Headline text == punch line of king car travels

Only for jokes?[edit]

Is the designation "punch line" really only for jokes? Not a native speaker, I tried to get confirmation of the existence of this expression - but then I found here it is only for jokes while I believed it is a more general expression for a an articulated closing line, also of other texts such as advertisements and even formal report conclusions. My (Dutch-Eglish) dictionary actually gives a wider meaning to the expression.

"punch line" or "punchline"?[edit]

I landed on this article looking for consensus on whether it's "punch line" or "punchline." Turns out the title of the article is "punch line" but throughout the article it's "punchline." Which is preferred? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.174.177.138 (talk) 23:32, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Punch line is...[edit]

The article lacks a definition, which it should start with. It jumps straight to etymology. Timelezz (talk) 17:56, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
