“I’ve done a survey on how people walk home from the pub. The results are staggering”

“Staggering” can mean “the motion of someone who staggers” (noun) and “incredible” or “amazing” (adjective). A pun was posted on Twitter by Me Lord (and another poster) on September 27, 2016:
   
“Apparently there’s been a survey about how people walk home from the pub. The results are staggering.”
 
The joke possibly originated from an image.
