“A ventriloquist 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 ventriloquist version has been cited in print since at least 2013:
 
“A ventriloquist walks into a bar and a voice from the other side of the room says, ‘Ouch!’”
 
A different version was posted on Twitter by Darren Walsh Puns‏ on December 7, 2017:
   
“Ventriloquist walks into a bar.
Barman says, sorry we don’t serve dummys.
Dummy says ‘Thats not very nice’
Barman says ‘I didn’t say anything’”
