Add Tag:
A Sub-Trope of Don't Explain the Joke, wherein the teller of a failed joke follows up with some variation of "That was a joke."

Differs from I Was Just Joking in that an integral part of I Was Just Joking is that the listener takes it completely seriously. Here however, it's simply not funny.

Up for Grabs.
