“Two penguins 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 penguin version is:

“Two penguins walk into a bar, and the bartender says, ‘Waddle it be, boys?’”

“Waddle it be, gentlemen?” was a photo caption in the Chicago (IL) Tribune on December 15, 1993. “Two penguins walk into a bar an the bartender says, ‘Waddle it be?’” was posted on Twitter by Jenna Lancaster on October 10, 2012.

“A duck walks into a bar. The bartender asks, ‘Waddle it be?‘“ and “What do penguin waiters say?"/"Waddle it be?” are related jokes.


15 December 1993, Chicago (IL) Tribune, pg. D3, col. 2 photo caption: 
‘Waddle it be, gentlemen?’
Although more accustomed to greeting humans, a doorman at Montreal’s Inter-Continental Hotel does the honors Thursday for a pair of Magellanic penguins. The two guests flew in from Florida’s Sea World to tour Montreal area schools to promote conservation
