I see this word pop up regularly on social media. Just today two gemimates from North America, Lisa Alzo and Bill Williams, used it.

From the definitions I see on the internet Bazinga is a word one uses when one has carried out a prank. Living way downunder in Australia I think I may be suffering from cross-cultural ignorance. 

Why I am curious is that, if this word has some genealogical significance I'd like to include it in the Geneadictionary.

Can anyone please enlighten me?

It is from a TV show in America called The Big Bang Theory - One of the characters uses it when he tries to play a joke, but he is so nerdy he doesn't really now how to joke.
Another expression you may see from this show in comments sometimes is Oh Snap (darn, oh damn, etc)
