** Similarly, ''TheKidsInTheHall'' sketch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hvn20p6HNbE "Comedy Inc"]], in which a comedy writer's boss chews him out for writing bad sketches like "Comedy Inc", ends with a long pause, after which the boss asks the writer, "You forgot to write an ending, didn't you?"

->''"A punchline should be equated to an actual punch in the face. That's why it's called a punch-line. You deliver it and run. [[DontExplainTheJoke You do not hang around explaining how you did the punch and that the recipient should probably be in a lot of pain now]]."''

Compare OneTwoPunchline and EscalatingPunchline. If a punchline appears without the rest of the joke, it's an OrphanedPunchline. Compare and contrast with its dramatic cousin, the WhamLine.

If the joke appears to be setting up one punchline but then goes for another, that's SubvertedPunchline. On the other hand, the punchline can be left for you to figure out on your own; that's a StealthPun. Compare and contrast with its dramatic cousin, the WhamLine.

Not to be confused with the 1988 film starring Creator/SallyField and Creator/TomHanks or the 2015 [[Anime/PuchLine anime]].

Took off mangafox link, which isn't allowed. Changed it into chapter number for Negima.
* In ''MahouSenseiNegima'', Negi once {{lampshaded}} it after sneezing on Chisame. ([[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v37/c338/19.html Link]] -- {{NSFW}})

* Subversion: The boys behind ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' apparently felt no need to tack a punchline at the end of every sketch, no matter what {{the BBC}} told them. They usually offered a segue into the next sketch instead, though a few sketches made fun of such punchlines. The restaurant sketch with the dirty fork is an example of the latter, where the cheesiness of the punchline (which is marked by a title card saying 'And now for the punchline' and was [[spoiler: "Luckily I didn't tell him about the dirty knife."]]) is shown to ruin the humour of the sketch. When a later sketch is ended by a policeman who tries to arrest everyone for making a strange sketch, another policeman then enters and tries to arrest everyone else for trying to get out of the sketch without a punchline.

** Another Fry and Laurie sketch paused in the middle for a "contest" where viewers could phone in their suggestions for the punch line, with the winning entry being performed at the end.
