Hello :)

I've got a question: how do you say ¨to kill the punch line¨in Italian?

Come si dice ¨to kill the punch line¨in italiano?

Grazie mille :)

    I realize this is a stand-alone expression but I suspect the mods would like you to add the context and your own attempt at translation before we can have some fun with it. :)

    To kill the punch line means when sb tells a joke and finally says sth wrong, so people don't laugh. If sb knows how to say it, I'll appreciate it.

    Massacrare la battuta finale di una barzelletta. Ma ci sarà una traduzione migliore, no?
