i read somewhere (maybe on IMDB) that there was no punchline, Nelson just improv'd the joke on the spot, and so it was never a proper joke, just a small slice of genius from Judd.

Apparently not - although he did change the way that they were delivered. John Hughes saw the role as much less serious, and wanted Judd Nelso to play it that way. The intent was to make Bender's tales of his home life, and thecigar burn, all a joke, playing for attention. Judd Nelson disagreed, saying that it would have more impact if it were played for real. After some heated discussions that nearly got Nelson Fired a couple of times, Hughes came round to appreciating Nelson's thoughts, and the rest is cinema history!

I watched this film for the first time a little while ago, great film!
I remember watching that scene and waiting for Judd to tell and funny joke, but unfortunately I never heard one.
