My problem with this panel is that, for anything about it to be funny on its own, you have to assume that Denver will do the opposite of what he is saying. But his reaction isn’t shown or really implied. This type of joke set up is common enough that many people probably did conclude that, but part of me thinks it isn’t smart to rely on Assumed Characterization and Joke Tropism in the same page for something to come close to being funny.
