“A person with a liberal arts degree 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 liberal arts graduate version is:

“A person with an art degree walks into a bar. They then head behind the counter and start serving drinks.”

The joke was posted on Reddit—Jokes on June 29, 2017.

“Philosophy majors ask why you want fries with that” is another joke about the post-graduate employment of liberal arts majors.
