there is a true art to telling a joke that isn't funny. it's a kind of intellectual and emotional juggling act. Here's a joke from Elizabeth Bishop:

One Art

The art of losing isnít hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isnít hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my motherís watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isnít hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasnít a disaster.

óEven losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shanít have lied. Itís evident
the art of losingís not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

I would love to rhyme like Bishop;
I love the things she finds to fish up.

A guy walks into a bar. He hasn't played golf since his wife died yesterday. The horse asks him, "Why the long face?" He replies, "I'm a frayed knot."
