Let's say your rolling your canoe down the sidewalk and the paddle on the boot breaks off, how many pancakes does it take to shingle a dog house? None because dogs don't lay eggs.

Heard this about 35 years ago - but never heard an answer ~~

If it takes a hen and a half, a day and a half, to lay an egg and a half - how long does it take a grasshopper with a wooden leg to kick all the seeds out of a cucumber?

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."

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

The way i heard it 40+ years ago...

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:
Q: If it takes 16 flapjacks to shingle a doghouse, how long would it take a grasshopper with a wooden leg to kick all the seeds out of a dill pickle?
A: Half an orange.
You wanna know why? Cuz a vest doesn't have sleeves!
For what it's worth, I lived in CT til I was eight, then in upstate NY til I was twelve. I'm guessing that I first heard this about 45 years ago, when I was ten.

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:
Q: If the canoe on your roof, has three flat tires. How many pancakes does it take to cover your dog house?
A: Half as long, as it takes a crossed eyed grasshopper to kick the seeds out of a dill pickle.

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)
