* ButtMonkey: The writers had several favourite targets, such as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonel_Sibthorp Colonel Sibthorp]] in the 1840s and WinstonChurchill in the 1920s--in both those cases for being colourful, outspoken ultra right wing politicians.

* ParodyNames: For instance, Sir Robert Peel was dubbed "Sir Rhubarb Pill" and Lord Randolph Churchill (WinstonChurchill's dad) was called "Grandolph" for his egotism.

The magazine takes its name from Mr Punch of ''PunchAndJudy'', who was supposedly the editor. Other members of his family occasionally showed up, such as Judy covering articles to do with more feminine subjects.

''Punch, [[EitherOrTitle or the London Charivari]]'' was a British magazine focusing on political satire, running from [[LongRunners 1841 to 2002]]. Part of the same tradition as Gillray, ''SpittingImage'' and ''PrivateEye''--in fact the creators of ''PrivateEye'' admired ''Punch'' in their youth, and created their own magazine because they believed that ''Punch'' had lost its way and become too tame in tone.

''Punch, [[EitherOrTitle or the London Charivari]]'' was a British magazine focusing on political satire, running from [[LongRunners 1841 to 2002]]. Part of the same tradition as James Gillray, ''SpittingImage'' ''Series/SpittingImage'' and ''PrivateEye''--in ''Magazine/PrivateEye''--in fact the creators of ''PrivateEye'' ''Magazine/PrivateEye'' admired ''Punch'' in their youth, and created their own magazine because they believed that ''Punch'' had lost its way and become too tame in tone.



Throughout its run ''Punch'' was noted for its irreverent approach to politicians and celebrities (both at home and abroad) and its cartoonists, who produced a number of images which have become part of the cultural fabric of the nation. One such cartoon is "Dropping the Pilot", showing Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany dismissing Bismarck, while at the other end of the seriousness spectrum is a cartoon making the classic "[[Series/DoctorWho Daleks can't climb stairs]]" joke. One of these cartoons gave British English the very useful phrase "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curate%27s_egg curate's egg]]". The famous spoof history work ''[[Literature/TenSixtySixAndAllThat 1066 And All That]]'' was originally serialised in ''Punch''.

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: In later years, tended to aim these at ''Magazine/PrivateEye''. For example, a table of how to rate celebrities' fame placed "Appeared on Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou (Paul Merton's team)" one place above "Appeared on Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou (Ian Hislop's team)".

Added DiffLines:

* FutureImperfect: Sometimes played straight in jokes. A variation in an early issue involves the amateur excavation of part of the mud bank of the Thames and historians confidently claiming what are obviously recent items are Roman or Tudor artefacts, right down to coming up with a fake Latin etymology for an abbreviation on a bottle cap.
