What animal can jump higher than a house?

Q: What animal can jump higher than a house?
A: Any animal a house cannot jump.


The humor in this joke is based on the listeners misinterpretation of the original question. The listener is supposed to hear the setup and assume that the jokester means "What animal can jump higher than a house is tall?", but the jokester really meant "What animal can jump higher than a house can jump?"

It is funny because the listener misunderstands it originally.
