The Breakfast Club: John Bender's Joke

In The Breakfast Club, John Bender is crawling through the ceiling space back to the library after being locked in the closet. He is reciting a joke to himself.

It goes:

Naked blonde walks into a bar with a poodle under one arm and a two-foot salami under the other. She lays the poodle on the table. The bartender says, "I suppose you won't be needing a drink." Naked lady says...

Then he falls through the ceiling. Any ideas of what the punchline ought to be?

Well, the official line (Courtesy of the imdb ) is :
The joke that Bender tells but never finishes (while crawling through the ceiling) actually has no punchline. According to Judd Nelson, he ad-libbed the line. Originally, he was supposed to tell a joke that would end when he came back into the library and said, "Forgot my pencil", but no one could come up with a joke for that punchline.
But I suppose if an appropriate punch line can't be thought of here, it can't be thought of anywhere!
