“A sperm donor, a carpenter, and Julius Caesar walk into a bar…” (bar jokes)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” An “I came, I saw, I conquered” version is:

“A sperm donor, a carpenter, and Julius Caesar walk into a bar. He came, he saw, he conquered.”

“Veni, vidi, vici” is Latin for “I came, I saw, I conquered.” The bar joke version was posted on Reddit—Dad Jokes on October 5, 2018.


Wikipedia: Veni, vidi, vici
“Veni, vidi, vici” (Classical Latin: [ˈweːniː ˈwiːdiː ˈwiːkiː]; Ecclesiastical Latin: [ˈvɛni ˈvidi ˈvitʃi]; “I came; I saw; I conquered") is a Latin phrase popularly attributed to Julius Caesar, who supposedly used the phrase in a letter to the Roman Senate around 46 BC after he had achieved a quick victory in his short war against Pharnaces II of Pontus at the Battle of Zela. The phrase is used to refer to a swift, conclusive victory.
