My wife found this on Facebook.

If I have four pencils and you have seven apples,
how many pancakes will fit on the roof?

Answer: Purple, because aliens don't wear hats.

Would someone please explain the joke for me? Can't decide whether it's absurdest or just missed the punchline.

Do I really have to explain the joke?

It is a parody of all word problems.

This is probably the way word problems look
