For use in the event of a failed joke.
Someone attempts a joke, when they fail to get a laugh, wait for a few seconds for maximum impact, then deliver a completely deadpan "another joke bites the dust...". Hilarious.
Person 1: yeah, and that's what your mother said last night!!
*tense, expectant silence, not punctuated with laughter*
Person 2: Another joke bites the dust.
