“Two Corinthians walk into a bar…” (bar joke)

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

“Two Corinthians walk into a bar...”

The Second Epistle to the Corinthians is usually called “Second Corinthians,” not “Two Corinthians.” “Two Corinthians walk into a bar...” was posted on Twitter on April 20, 2012. “2 Corinthians walk into a bar 3:17” was posted on Twitter on June 3, 2012.

The joke went viral after U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump said “Two Corinthians” in a speech at Liberty University on January 18, 2016. “Two Corinthians….walk into a bar?” was posted on Twitter on January 18, 2016.


Wikipedia: Second Epistle to the Corinthians
The Second Epistle to the Corinthians, often written as 2 Corinthians, is a Pauline epistle and the eighth book of the New Testament of the Bible. Paul the Apostle and “Timothy our brother” wrote this epistle to “the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia”.[2Cor.1:1]

Trump blames Tony Perkins for ‘2 Corinthians’
By Eric Bradner, CNN
Updated 9:11 PM ET, Thu January 21, 2016
Washington (CNN)Donald Trump says it’s Tony Perkins’ fault he said “two Corinthians” instead of “Second Corinthians” during a speech at Liberty University this week—a mistake that raised questions about his biblical knowledge as he courts evangelical voters.

The Republican presidential front-runner said in an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon Wednesday that Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, had given him notes on what to say when he visited the evangelical university in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Got anything from “2 Corinthians Walk Into A Bar”? That’s the one Trump is most familiar with...don’t confuse him with others, as his reading ability is, well, not so good.
