Question # 306

Before this term, words like 'bite' or 'hit' were used. The term most probably owes its origin to the 'Punch and Judy' puppet shows, which feature a guy called Punch and his wife Judy alongwith some recurring minor characters.
Punch would exhibit outrageous behaviour and say unexpected and shocking lines of dialogue that would throw the audience out of the window with laughter.
