“A non sequitur 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 non sequitur version is:

“A non sequitur walks into a bar. In a strong wind, even turkeys can fly.”

“A non sequitur walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘What’s that on your head, pal?’ The non sequitur says, ‘How do I get to the highway?’” was posted on Twitter on February 16, 2009. “A non sequitur walks into a bar and asks for a horse” was posted on Twitter on August 23, 2012.

“A non sequitur walks into a bar. In a strong wind, even turkeys can fly” was posted on Language Matters on September 20, 2014. (This date may be incorrect.) However, the joke went viral in February 2018.
