“A potato 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 potato version is:
 
“A potato walks into a bar and all eyes were on him!”
 
The potato joke was cited on a 2007 website and was first posted on Twitter on May 7, 2010.

When you post to this newsgroup, add a joke for goodness sakes! I just read 20 messages and got 2 jokes. Get real!
 
A potato walks into a bar, says to the barman “Vodka on the rocks!” The barman says “Vodka?!! Don’t you know that’s made of potatoes, what are you a cannibal or something?!!!” The potato says “Ohmygod, potatoes?!! I never realised!!!! Just a packet of chips then thanks.”
 
History: I made this one up! 😊
