OK, it is Friday, so it is time for the explanation. I hope you are not disappointed:
First of all, this is playing on the usual jokes in which someone or some people walk into a bar etc., and then some funny dialogue follows. However, no information can get out of a black hole. Therefore we cannot know what happens once the protons have walked into the black hole. So the point of the joke is the way it ends unexpectedly.
