Default Joke(?)

I was reading through a small joke book.
For the most part these jokes made sense(though they weren't very high quality...) but this one was... Well, I didn't get it.

I asked my brothers, I asked my mom, I even asked my dog.
None being useful for figuring it out, I decided to come here!

Here's the joke.

I understand the joke as the witch's broomstick is made of skeleton bones...

Isn't a skeleton crew the people who make racecars for the drivers?

A skeleton crew is when you have only just enough people to do the job. I have no idea what the joke is on about though. Kacper's idea is the only one that seems to fit, if badly.

I suppose it means that, instead of barely enough people making the broomstick, it means a crew of actual skeletons made the broomstick. All in all, not very funny.

Huh, I thought there was something that I missed in the joke that would make it funny.

I guess it was just a bad joke after all.

I think none of us are getting this joke. I agree that it was a crew of skeletons that made the broomstick. But then for some reason there is a pun involved, meaning that the broom stuck to something. I think this might be because the broom was somehow made out a bone from one of the skeletons, so he was therefore stuck to the broom. But I am only speculating.

Sometimes jokes are so dumb that intelligent people like us just can't get them. It's like in the Simpsons when someone gets hit in the forehead with a frisbee, that being a metaphor for something not going over one's head, but under.

Or perhaps I am just thinking too much.

Wow...

It's all Halloween related; I suppose that's the [skeleton] key.

Is the expression "skeleton crew", meaning the absolute minimum amount of workers, a European thing?
