“A violinist walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar…” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” Sometimes the “bar” involves musical notation.
     
“A violinist walks into a bar. The conductor stops and makes the whole orchestra start from the top again” was posted on Twitter by Matthew Beardsworth | Composer on May 27, 2021.
 
     
Wikipedia: Bar (music)
In musical notation, a bar (or measure) is a segment of time corresponding to a specific number of beats in which each beat is represented by a particular note value and the boundaries of the bar are indicated by vertical bar lines.
