“A platypus walks into a bar owned by a duck…” (bar joke)

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

“A platypus walks into a bar owned by a duck. He finishes his drink and asks for his check. Duck billed platypus.”

The joke was posted on Reddit—Jokes on October 8, 2019, and Reddit—Dadjokes on October 10, 2019.


Wikipedia: Platypus
The platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus), sometimes referred to as the duck-billed platypus, is a semiaquatic egg-laying mammal[3] endemic to eastern Australia, including Tasmania. The platypus is the sole living representative of its family (Ornithorhynchidae) and genus (Ornithorhynchus), though a number of related species appear in the fossil record.

A platypus walks into a duck bar and orders two drinks. He gets charged for 10. A duck walks over and says “you have my bill” :D
