“A time traveler 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 time travel version is:

“Bartender says ‘We don’t serve time travelers here.’ A time traveler walks into a bar.”

The joke was cited on Twitter on December 7, 2009.

“To get to the time machine."/"Why did the chicken cross the road?” is a similar time travel joke on a popular meme.
