EXAMPLES FROM THE WEB FOR SEND-UP

A horse hitched to the end of the chain hauls up the log, which is guided by the "send-up men" with their cant-hooks.

WORD ORIGIN

"a spoof," British slang, 1958, from verbal phrase send up "to mock, make fun of" (1931), from send (v.) + up (adv.), perhaps a transferred sense of the public school term for "to send a boy to the headmaster" (usually for punishment), which is attested from 1821.
