    it is a long rambling joke,often with a pointless and not very funny ending.

    A very long story or joke with a pointless ending.

    The joke is that a man with a shaggy dog goes all around the world and everyone tells him how shaggy his dog is, and the joke goes on and on and on until finally they meet someone at a different place who says "I don't think he's very shaggy." The joke is not funny, except that you are making someone sit through a long joke with no good punch line.
