"No, sweetie, but I'd miss you a lot."

Does the joke play on "querer" meaning "to want" as well as "like/love" or is the joke that she'd leave him if she won the lottery?

I think the joke is that if she won the lottery, she'd enjoy the money by herself--she wouldn't bring him along. There might be a deeper joke using the meanings of "abandon" for dejar and "throw away" for echar but if there is, I don't see it.

¡Chistoso! My favorite joke going the other direction is about José arriving in the US and going to his first baseball game. His friend asks him about it afterwards, and he says, It was wonderful, people were so nice. Before the game started, they all stood and asked me, "José, can you see?"

The joke is that the boy meant to say 'soya milk', but it came out as 'soy milk' instead, so his father responded in spanish.

https://www.duolingo.com/Adina_atl

In the US it's generally just "soy milk", not "soya milk". In Spanish "soja" seems to be (slightly) preferred to "soya".
