      Where did the "badum tiss" come from?

      You know how when comedians make a joke, then someone does that drum thing that's like "badum tiss?" I was wondering... does anyone know the history of this? Who used it first and where did it start? I can't seem to find any information about it.

      It's called a sting....I have no idea where it came from though.

      If I find out I’ll let you know but your question reminded me of this:

      I’ve tried several Google searches for the history of “da dum tish” but having no luck so far.

      From my own Google searching, people seem to say it originated with Vaudeville acts at some point. Nothing official though.

      Hm. Well, thanks for looking guys. I feel like its been around forever, probably not important enough to be documented, though. I think Vaudeville acts is a good assumption.

      Hi tempUserName

      What do you mean by "yfw"?

      I looked it up here:

      What does YFW mean? - YFW Definition - Meaning of YFW - InternetSlang.com

      but maybe you were meaning something different.
