“A rock 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 rock version is:

“A rock walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘We don’t serve your kind here.’ The rock says, ‘Why not? I’m a Gneiss guy!’”

The gneiss rock joke was posted on Twitter on March 2, 2010, and on Reddit—Jokes on January 13, 2018.

There have been several other “rock walks into a bar” versions. “A rock walks into a bar ‘can I have a double whiskey on the rocks’ and then they pour whiskey on him haha” was posted on April 27, 2012.

Rock walks into a bar. Bartender says “looks like you’ve put on a few pounds.” Rock says “It’s my sedimentary lifestyle. Also, you’re mean.”
