AFAIK never used in canon.

"A joke is a story with a humorous climax." (Spock to McCoy, ST4)

OKONA: "You don't know what a joke is?" 
DATA:  "Of course I do. It is a witticism, a gag, a bon mot, a fluctuation of words concluding with a trick ending." (TNG "The Outrageous Okona")

"Joke: a verbal comment or gesture designed to provoke laughter." (Borg Drone One to Doctor, VOY "Drone")

"I don't understand their humor either." (Worf to Data, TNG "The Naked Now")
