Just overheard this term as a way to refer to one-line jokes. I don’t see it on the Oxford Dictionary site or Wiktionary.

I didn’t try to find the earliest date, but here are three:

05 September 2008 - The “The New York Times” (http://nyti.ms/1RNdSsw) has it in a review by Dahlia Lithwick.

04 February 2012 - "New Jersey On-Line" (http://bit.ly/1PYdQMO) has it in an article by Amy Kuperinsky.

17 July 2015 - “IGN” (http://bit.ly/1mWuylP) by mrwelchman
