A blue man lives in the blue house. A red man lives in the red house. Who lives in the white house?” The immediate answer, given the pattern set up, would be “a white man,” but the “White House” is a red herring: the President of the United States lives in the White House!

If the herring has been freshly painted, it is wet. The joke is that it really doesn’t whistle — there’s intentionally no solution to this riddle.
