“3.14159265 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 Pi (3.1414159265…) version is:
     
“3.14159265 walks into a bar and the barman says, ‘Sorry, we don’t serve pie.’”
   
The Pi/pie joke was posted on Twitter by Adam Brown on January 15, 2009.
