In China, a joke that funny by virtue of being not actually funny at all. The name comes from the fact that when one hears a cold joke, he shivers in terror instead of laughing because the joke is so bad. From Mandarin Chinese, "leng xiao hua."
An example of a cold joke: "There was a hide and seek club at my high school. The president still hasn't been found."
