look up any word, like thot:
A person who tells a joke that they think is funny, but actually is not funny. In essence, they have missed the mark and metaphorically "punched the coat" instead.

Coat Puncher has been popularized by the dot-com website bearing the same name.
Hey man, that joke wasn't very funny. Don't be a coat puncher.
