“An SQL query goes into a restaurant…” (joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” There are several jokes involving SQL (Structured Query Language), pronounced “sequel” or by the letters “ess-que-el” by some. The jokes involve “tables” at a bar or at a restaurant.

SQL (/ˌɛsˌkjuːˈɛl/) S-Q-L, /ˈsiːkwəl/ “sequel”; Structured Query Language) is a domain-specific language used in programming and designed for managing data held in a relational database management system (RDBMS), or for stream processing in a relational data stream management system (RDSMS). It is particularly useful in handling structured data, i.e. data incorporating relations among entities and variables.
