“A spark plug 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 spark plug version is:

“A spark plug walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘I’ll serve you, but don’t start anything.’”

The joke has been cited in print since at least 2009. “A jumper cable walks into a bar...” is the same joke.
