When you are writing an essay, you present all the mundane topics just lke punches boxers give and take during a match. When one subject hits too close to home and you feel the sudden urge to spazz out on the paper, this momentary surge is called an 'uppercut' so to speak.
John was writing an essay on 'the life cycles of mammals' when suddenly he realized the book was insinuating that all mammals are a certain way. He began to spew a paragraph about how some mammals DO NOT act accordingly to traditional concepts. Incidentally, he threw an essay uppercut.
