Sorry, chronology is not the problem. People don't think, "I liked the joke, but it was just too timely."
Saying "too soon" after a crappy joke is like setting up a chick on a date with a homeless guy and then, when she complains, saying, "Too tall? It's because he's too tall, right?" A: "No, it's because he's too not having a home."
