One popular bar joke is:
“A woman walked into a bar and ordered a double entendre, so the barman gave her one.”
It’s not known who originated the joke. “A girl waks into a bar and orders a Double entendre. So the barman gives her one” was cited in print in 1998.
Meta-joke refers to several somewhat different, but related categories: self-referential jokes, jokes about jokes (also known as metahumor), and joke templates.
This kind of meta-joke is a joke in which a familiar class of jokes is part of the joke. Examples of meta-jokes:
. A woman walked into an English pub and asked the barman for a double entendre. So he gave her one.
. A woman walked into an American bar and asked the bartender for a double entendre. So he gave it to her.
