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

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

“Two overachievers walk into a bar. Clearly, the bar wasn’t set high enough.”

“An overachiever walks into a bar. Raises it” was posted on Twitter on August 23, 2011. “Two overachievers walk into a bar. Apparently it wasn’t set high enough” was posted on Twitter on January 25, 2012.
