“Harry Potter 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 Harry Potter version is:

“Harry Potter walks into a bar. Because I put them on his bedroom window.“

The joke was posted on Twitter on September 25, 2012, and on Reddit—Dadjokes on December 12, 2019.

“Harry Potter walks into a bar… Because Uncle Vernon put them on his bedroom window“ was posted on Reddit—Harrypotter on April 27, 2017.

Harry Potter is a series of fantasy novels written by British author J. K. Rowling. The novels chronicle the lives of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The main story arc concerns Harry’s struggle against Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who intends to become immortal, overthrow the wizard governing body known as the Ministry of Magic and subjugate all wizards and Muggles (non-magical people).
