“A corn stalk 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 corn stalk version is:
 
“A corn stalk walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘Wanna hear a good joke?’ The corn stalk says, ‘I’m all ears!’”
 
The joke has been cited in print since at least 2008.
