“Who digs the graves when the grave diggers go on strike?"/"The skeleton crew.”

A “skeleton crew” has the minimum number of people—and not actual skeletons—but there’s a Halloween riddle:

Q: Who digs the graves when the grave diggers go on strike?
A: The skeleton crew.


The joke was posted to the newsgroup alt.humor on October 15, 1998.
