I was at an Model UN conference and often notes like the following get passed. As I'm not a native speaker, I assume that this has to do with some pronunciational issue. Can you please explain what's so funny about this sentence? (Djibouti seemed to be often used in such context.)

If Bangkok invaded Djibouti would Greece help?

    Hmm... what's the site policy on vulgarities? Obviously the poster didn't know when they asked, but this is clearly PG 18 (or 15 at least!) - not that I personally have a problem with it.

The punning here is obscene. It means

If bang cock invaded your booty, would grease help?

cock = penis
booty = ass 
grease = lubricant

    One more: "Bang" means "intercourse." Also, this is not a pickup line. At least, I HOPE it isn't!

    @User42 next question is, do the guys at Model UN really have nothing else to do?
