“A lion, a witch and a wardrobe 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 The Chronicles of Narnia version is:

“A lion, a witch and a wardrobe walk into a bar. The bartender says, ‘I ain’t serving Narnia!’”

“Narnia” sounds like “none of you.” “A lion, a witch and a wardrobe walk into a bar… The barman says ‘I’m not serving Narnia!’” was posted on Twitter by Ross Murray on November 2, 2014.


Wikipedia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a fantasy novel for children by C. S. Lewis, published by Geoffrey Bles in 1950. It is the first published and best known of seven novels in The Chronicles of Narnia(1950–1956). Among all the author’s books, it is also the most widely held in libraries. Although it was originally the first of The Chronicles of Narnia, it is volume two in recent editions that are sequenced by the stories’ chronology.
