“An empty bottle walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

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

“An empty bottle walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘Hey, weren’t you drunk in here last night?’”

The joke was posted on the newsgroup alt.callahans on October 21, 1996.
