“A programmer 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 programmer version is:

“A programmer walks into a bar holding up two fingers and says: ‘Three beers, please.’”

The programmer is using base 2 (binary). The joke was posted on the newsgroup borland.public.off-topic on June 15, 2007.

The joke is often given with three programmers walking into a bar. “Three programmers walk into a bar. One of them holds up two fingers and says ‘three beers bartender’” was posted on the newsgroup ed.general on August 13, 2008.
