“The ice age walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

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

“The ice age walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘Why the long phase?’”

The pun is on the famous “Why the long face?” punchline of the “A horse walks into a bar...” joke.

“The ice age walks into a bar, barman says ‘why the long phase’?” was posted on Twitter on August 30, 2013. “The Ice Age walks into a bar. The barman says ‘Why the long freeze?’” was posted on Twitter on April 30, 2018.
