“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A popular English grammar bar joke is:
“The past, the present, and the future walk into a bar. It was tense.”
The joke has been cited in print since at least 2009 and has been printed on many posters.
“past, present and future walk into a bar. it was t e n s e.” ... brilliant nighty night, every1.
