“A square, a triangle and a hexagon walk into a bar…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A shape version is:

“A square, a triangle and a hexagon walk into a bar. The bartender says, ‘Looks like you boys could use a round.’”

The joke has been cited in print since at least 2015.
