“A bar walks into a commutative algebraist” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A math version is:

“A bar walks into a commutative algebraist”

The joke was posted on Twitter by brocialist reply guy on August 20, 2008.


Wikipedia: Commutative algebra
Commutative algebra is the branch of algebra that studies commutative rings, their ideals, and modules over such rings. Both algebraic geometry and algebraic number theory build on commutative algebra. Prominent examples of commutative rings include polynomial rings; rings of algebraic integers, including the ordinary integers {\displaystyle \mathbb {Z} }\mathbb {Z} ; and p-adic integers.
