Pas de Quoi ?
The sentence I am trying to make sense of is: "Pas de quoi rigoler a priori mais tonton.......". My understanding is: "Nothing to laugh at in the last statement but uncle....". Am I correct and is the "Pas de Quoi" part really just a shortening of: Il y a pas de quoi?
Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Yes, you're right that pas de quoi is short for il n'y a pas de quoi.
However, a priori does not mean "in the last statement" but rather "at first glance" or "in principle."
