Someone posted a thread on Reddit requesting for local “dark humour” jokes. /r/Singapore did not disappoint (though most of them ended up being fairly xenophobic but I guess that’s just one of the most prominent ways one can even “do” dark jokes in Singapore).
Here are some of the more outstanding ones I found on the thread;

One day, 4 babies were born at K.K. Hospital: a German, a Jewish, a Filipino and a Singaporean.
However, someone mixed up the babies by mistake, and the nurses couldn’t differentiate between them.
However, the head sister had a bright idea. She lined the babies up in front of her and exclaimed, “Heil Hitler!”
At hearing this, the German baby raised his arm in a salute, while the Jewish baby soiled his diapers. In the meantime, the Singaporean baby turned to the Filipino baby and said, “Clean that up!”

There was a Brazilian, Bangladeshi and Singaporean stranded in a forest. Out of boredom, the Brazilian takes out a cigar, lights it, takes two puffs and tosses it to the ground. Bangladeshi and Singaporean look at him, stunned. Brazilian very proudly proclaims, “don’t worry! I have many of those at home!”
Bangladeshi, not wanting to be outdone, searches his pockets and finds a cigarette. He lights it, takes two puffs and tosses it to the ground. Singaporean looks at him, stunned. Bangladeshi proudly proclaims, “don’t worry, I have many of those at home!”
The Singaporean by now was losing his mind, searching his pockets frantically for something to show off but there was just nothing.
Singaporean finally calms down, walks over to the Bangladeshi, picks him up and tosses him to the ground. Brazilian looks at him, absolutely stunned. Singaporean very very very proudly proclaims “don’t worry! I have many of those at home!”
