“A horse walks into a barn…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” “A horse walks into a barn” is an anti-joke.

“A horse walks into a barn and says “Hay!’” was posted on Twitter by Dee Costa on December 4, 2009. “A horse walks into a barn and the barman says ‘Why the wrong place?’” was posted on Twitter by Ryan Mardy Land on August 24, 2010. “Originally it was just ‘A horse walks into a barn’, but somewhere in the Middle Ages the n was dropped and it became the joke we know today” was posted on Twitter by MꙬse Allain on February 17, 2015.
