“Man goes in a pub…” (bar joke)

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

“Man goes in a pub. Barman says, ‘Get out, we don’t serve exotic fruit here.’”

The pun is that “man goes” is a joke for “mango” (an exotic fruit). “Man goes in a pub, and the bartender says ‘whose are these mangoes?’” was posted on Twitter by The Dariuster™ on May 18, 2010. 

“Man goes in a pub. Barman says. “Sorry we don’t serve fruit’” was posted on Twitter by Jon Elliott on March 8, 2011. “Man goes into a bar. Barman says ‘we don’t serve fruit here’” was posted on Twitter by Gemma on September 10, 2012.
