“A bra and a set of jumper leads walk into a bar…” (bar joke)

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

“A bra walks into a bar and asks for a beer. The bartender says, ‘I can’t serve you. You’re off your tits.”

“Off my/your tits” means to be very drunk. The joke has been cited in print since at least 2002. “A bra walks into a bar.  Bartender says ‘Thank you for your support’” was posted on Twitter on April 9, 2008. “A bra walks into a bar.  Bartender says ‘We don’t serve bras in here.’ Bra says ‘But I brought my own cups!’ #dadumching” was posted on Twitter on December 6, 2010.

The joke often includes “jumper leads” also walking with the bra into a bar, and the bartender fears that someone “off their tits” will “start something.” “A jumper cable walks into a bar...” is a related joke.

A bra and a set of jumper leads walk into a bar.

The set of jumper leads takes a seat at a table while the bra goes up to the bar.

The bra says to the barman, “G’day mate, 3 schooners of VB thanks.”

“Sorry mate”, the barman says “but I can’t serve you.”

“Why not?” the bra says.

“You’re off your tits mate, and your friends look like they’re gunna start something.”

A BRA and a set of jumper leads walk into a bar. “We’ll have three glasses of Lion Red,” says the bra to the barman. “No way,” says the barman. “Why?” asks the bra.  “Because you’re off your tits and your friends look like they might start something.”
