“A man doesn’t walk into a bar…” (bar joke, told during COVID-19 bar closures)

“A guy walks into a bar…” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” However, during the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, bars were closed. The joke was:
   
“A man doesn’t walk into a bar…”
     
“A man doesn’t walk into a bar…...” was posted on Twitter by The Hat, previously known as Baking W/ Capt Marvel on March 22, 2020.
 
“A man doesn’t walk into a pub…,” “A man walks into a bar, lucky bastard,” “An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman don’t walk into a bar” and “An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman walk into a bar. Those were the days” are related jokes.

Under the new D.C. emergency coronavirus law, restaurants and bars can deliver alcohol. They can deliver as early as 7 a.m. Hard liquor is allowed too. No maximum! You have to order food too, but can’t just order chips. More rules here: https://abra.dc.gov/node/1467596
