“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A chemist version is:
“A chemist walks into a bar and asks, ‘Do you have any Sodium Hypobromite?’ The bartender shakes his head and says, ‘NaBrO.’”
“Do you have any Sodium HypoBromite? NaBrO” was cited on Twitter on August 8, 2011. A “walks into a bar” joke version—“guy walks into a bar ad asks: ‘have you heard the joke about sodium bromide?’ bartender: ‘Nah Bro’. lol get it? NaBrO?”—was cited on Twitter on October 23, 2012. The “NaBrO” joke has been printed on many GIFs.
Wikipedia: Sodium bromate
Sodium bromate, the inorganic compound with the chemical formula of NaBrO3, is the sodium salt of bromic acid. It is a strong oxidant.
Sodium bromate is mainly used in continuous or batch dyeing processes involving sulfur or vat dyes and as a hair-permagent, chemical agent, or gold solvent in gold mines when used with sodium bromide.
