Jquery - .remove() bug

I'm trying to remove empty UL tags using Jquery below:

$("ul").each(function(){
     if ($(this).find("li").length == 0) {
     $(this).remove();
     // $(this).css("border","20px solid red");
     }
});

The strange thing is the $(this).remove(); doesn't work, whereas $(this).css("border","20px solid red"); in the code above works!

Are there any known bugs with .remove() ?

$(this).css( {display: "none"} );
