“Quasimodo 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 version involving the fictional character Quasimodo is:

“Quasimodo walks into a bar and orders a whisky. The bartender asks, ‘Bell’s alright?’ Quasimodo replies, ‘Mind your own fucking business.’”

Quasimodo is a bellringer; Bell’s is a brand of blended Scotch whisky. The joke was posted on the newsgroup za.humour on November 18, 1998.


Wikipedia: Quasimodo
Quasimodo (from Quasimodo Sunday) is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (1831) by Victor Hugo. Quasimodo was born with a hunchback and feared by the townspeople as a sort of monster, but he finds sanctuary in an unlikely love that is fulfilled only in death. The role of Quasimodo has been played by many actors in film and stage adaptations, including Lon Chaney, Sr. (1923) and Charles Laughton (1939), as well as Tom Hulce in the 1996 Disney animated adaptation. In 2010, a British researcher found evidence suggesting there was a real-life hunchbacked stone carver who worked at Notre Dame during the same period Victor Hugo was writing the novel and they may have even known each other.

Wikipedia: Bell’s whisky
Bell’s is a brand of blended Scotch whisky originally produced by Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd and now owned by Diageo. It is the highest selling whisky in the UK.
