“A janitor, a waitress, and a bartender walk into a bar… (bar joke)

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

“A janitor, a waitress, and a bartender walk into a bar. Then they open for the day.”

The joke was posted on Reddit—Jokes on December 28, 2017. “A bartender and a waitress walk into a bar. ‘Almost opening time,’ says the bartender. ‘Yep! I’ll get the oven going!’ replies the waitress”—a similar version—had been posted on Twitter on March 19, 2014.
