    Default how to say....?

    hi,

    How do we call a joke that is not funny at all and arouses no laughter at all? I know a "poor/bad joke", but do you have other way to call such a joke?
    In Chinese we often call it a " cold joke,"(literally) It's not correct, right?

    so, is there a more acceptable name for such a joke?

    Thanks!

    Paula

    It could be a:

    lame joke
    mediocre joke
    awful joke
    lousy joke
    pitiful attempt at humor

    :wink:
