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. 184.108.40.206 01:04, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Only for jokes?
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"?
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 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:32, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
Punch line is...
etymology footnote about punch line in popular song (2) does not verify the statement.
perhaps the editor got it wrong. The footnote needs to either be corrected or the statement about 1915 : popular song needs to be removed. thanksSmithriedel 23:53, 11 November 2015 (UTC)smithriedel
article rewritten, alert flags at top should be removed.
I updated this article in Nov 2015, in conjunction with a rewrite of the article on Jokes. The alert flags at top no longer apply; article now meets standards. I have added citations to content. Also removed anything that could not be verified. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smithriedel (talk • contribs) 18:50, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
