      Mr Punch celebrates 350 years of puppet anarchy

      He has survived political correctness and the PlayStation generation. Now Mr Punch is about to celebrate his 350th birthday. What's the reason for his longevity?
      With his familiar cry of "That's the way to do it!", Mr Punch has come a long way since his first mention in the diary of Samuel Pepys.
      Next week, the squawking red-nosed prince of slapstick turns 350, with a big party in London's Covent Garden piazza.
      It was here that Pepys recorded, on 9 May 1662, that he enjoyed "an Italian puppet play that is within the rayles there, which is very pretty, the best that ever I saw..."

      Title was very misleading :D
      I actually never knew Punch was that old.

      Wow! Is he really that old? Used to love watching those shows when I was younger.
