“How did the person who invented the first clock know what time it was?”

People set their clocks and watches to other ones, leading to a joke:

“How did the person who invented the first clock know what time it was?”

“How did the person who invented the first clock know what time to set it to?” was cited on Twitter on January 3, 2011, and the joke went viral in 2015.  The website I Can Has Cheezburger? illustrated the saying.
