You know... this thread, and TS's question are not actually unreasonable.

I would laugh extremely hard if it was Latin


EDIT:

Here's what I've gathered...

Poon:
wood of any poon tree; used for masts and spars

Tang:
The tang of a sword or fixed-blade knife is that part of the blade extending into and usually through the grip that is fastened to it.

According to Fussell (and the Online Etymology Dictionary), the word poontang derives from the French putain, prostitute; the latter ultimately (and value-judgementally) deriving from the Latin putidus, stinking.

EDIT: and it allegedly comes from a WW1 mispronunciation by soldiers.
