“Alpha, Delta and Omicron 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 version with COVID-19 (coronavirus) variants is:

“Alpha, Delta, and Omicron walk into a bar and order a few Coronas. ‘That’ll be $20.21,’ the bartender says.”

The variants happened in the year 2021. The joke was posted on Twitter by Tezcatlipoca Telos on December 6, 2021, and on Reddit—Dadjokes on December 7, 2021.
