As I heard it..."If you were paddling upstream in a canoe, how many pancakes does it take to cover a doghouse?" "It doesn't really matter because there are no pits in ice cream." "It could have been a cantaloupe, but it doesn't have any horns." "It was a football about this(hold index finger and thumb about 1 inch apart) color."
Wow, this is like a bad game of telephone! The original joke:

Answer: There's no bones in ice cream
I know this is an old thread but had to comment... never heard this version of the joke. The version I was taught almost 40 years ago is this:
You're walking down the street in your canoe; how many pancakes can you stack on your trunk? None, because ice cream don't have bones.
Alright, I need to get the version I was told as a kid out there... Not sure if I heard it from my dad or my uncle, but here it goes:

I made this joke up nearly 50 years ago. The real line is, If you are going down the river and your canoe has a flat tire, how many pancakes does it take to shingle a dog house.
I even made up the answer. 13 because you should not give a dog ice cream.
I am from the tri-state area, and the 70's version that I heard was:

Here's the version that I remember from the 60's, midwest, Chicago. "If you were walking down the street and saw a right handed man carrying a left handed canoe, how many pancakes would it take to fill up a doghouse? Thirteen, because ice cream has no bones."
Thats MY story, and I'm stickin' to it. Goes right along with the 60's "Memory Test" that starts out "One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters ... " that I can still do today. Amazing myself too! (Thanks Aunt Joan)

these are hilarious!! I have never heard any of them and I will be sure to use them with my co-workers. I work with mostly all men and they ask a lot of nosy questions. I think from now on, instead of replying in a sarcastic and hateful way, I'm going to come back at them with one of these riddles. They are all grown men over the age of 40, some over 50 but act like they are in junior high school. One of these statements will really get them going!!!! Thanks for posting!!!
Not funny since everyone has been hearing versions of it since Moses walked the earth and John the Baptist was still in good with King Herod. It should be inspiration to make up your own, on the fly dumb jokes

I heard this version over fifty years ago in Texas: If your driving across the desert and your boat has a flat tire, how many pancakes would it take to fill a dog house?
Two answers: bananas because fur doesn't grow on trees. Or, one if it's big enough.
So first is my dads version of the doghouse/pancake joke that i got from him as a kid 30 years ago and he got from his dad 30 years before that (I always wondered where it came from but it sounds like a lot of people got similarly odd versions of the joke from their dads--thanks dad!):
Q:If you were walking through the Great Swamp Desert and your wings fell off, how many pancakes does it take to fill a doghouse?
A:Pickles! Ice cream has no bones!
And another one my sister told me as kids:

The second looked at the first and replied, "OH MY GOSH, A TALKING SAUSAGE!!!"
