dry humour ,sometimes also referred to as deadpan, is a form of comedic delivery in which something humorous is said or done by a person, while not exhibiting a change in emotion or facial expression.

It is implied humour or indirect humour which largely depends on what the audience thinks is being said rather than anything else.
Mr.Carson, known for his blank expressions while performing outrageous stunts on his show ' Carson Tonight ' is by far the best dry humourist i know.

Dry humour is as in its name, humor that is not really that juicy, so not really humor at all. Something categorized in this can't be called a joke or a pun; it is simply something that is self-awarely (well, sadly, sometimes not) not funny nor humorous at all. Though, that doesn't really keep you from having shits and giggles on about it.

Think about it as some random meme-y thing -that is not supposed to be funny at all- that is said in a totally normal conversation.

It's sometimes said to be close to sarcasm, but the unnecessary type.
Jim: Can we talk tonight?
Tom; No, I'm busy with the kids in my basement.

Jim: It's so sad you are taking every opportunity to be funny, man. You must think you are very funny.

Tom: It's called dry humour, damit.

A nonchalant presentation of an alternative, often positive, perspective which is intrinsically humourous as it give a unique or uncommon perspective to observe, an often negative, situation. Usually highlighting the difficulties, but removing the tension, from the situation.
From The Monuments Men (2014)

Frank Stokes: What have you got?
James Granger: Stop, stop. I seem to have stepped on a land mine.
Frank Stokes: Why would you do something like that?
James Granger: It was a slow day.
The others walk up
Walter Garfield: What have you got?
Frank Stokes: The Lieutenant here seems to have found himself on top of an unexploded mine.
Walter Garfield: Why would you do that?
James Granger: You all have been spending too much time together.

Now that is dry humour.
