“A giraffe 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 giraffe version was cited in 1993:
 
“A giraffe walks into a bar and says, ‘High balls on me!’”
   
A different punchline was used in 2006:
 
“A giraffe walks into a bar and the bartender asks, anyway. Do you want a longneck? The giraffe replies, Do I have a choice?”
 
“A giraffe walks into a bar and the barman says, ‘I’m sorry, we don’t serve Heineken here’” and “A giraffe walks into a bar. Giraffes aren’t good at playing limbo” are other giraffe versions.
