“An English teacher 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 teacher version is:

“A teacher walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘Can I buy you a drink?’ The teacher says, ‘I don’t know, CAN you?’”

The bartender used “can” instead of “may.” Some versions specify that it’s an English teacher. The joke was posted on Twitter on April 2, 2012.

A different teacher joke was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on December 25, 2017:

“A teacher walks into a bar. The bartender asks what he’ll have. The teacher says ‘I want some vodka and none of that cheap stuff I’m a man of class.’”
