“I walked into a bar and ordered a double…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A pun on the terms “double martini” and “body double” is:

“I walked into a bar and ordered a double. The bartender brought out a guy who looked just like me.”

The joke has been cited in print since at least 2005 and has been printed on an image.
