“A QA engineer 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 quality assurance (QA) engineer version is:

“A QA engineer walks into a bar. Orders a beer. Orders 0 beers. Orders 999999999 beers. Orders a lizard. Orders -1 beers. Orders a sfdeljknesv.”

The joke about what a QA engineer does was posted on Twitter by Bill Sempf‏ on September 23, 2014. The joke has been printed on many images.

“A QA testing engineer walks into a bar. Runs into a bar. Crawls into a bar. Dances into a bar. Tiptoes into a bar. Rams into a bar. Jumps into a bar” is a similar joke.

Then he orders nothing.
Then he orders -1 beers.
Then he orders NULL beers.
Then he orders asnwikfjsdf.

Finally, the QA engineer leaves without paying, comes back, and asks for the tab.
