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:
