“A figure of speech literally walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

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

“A figure of speech literally walks into a bar and ends up getting figuratively hammered.”

The joke was posted on Bluebird of Bitterness on February 20, 2018.
