“Two elves walk into a bar. A hobbit walks under it” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar…” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” An elf version is:
   
“An elf walks into a bar. The hobbit laughs and walks under it.”
 
“An elf walks into a bar. A hobbit walks under it” was posted on Twitter by Astara aka Sinaea on May 10, 2008. “An elf walks into a bar. The hobbit laughs and walks under it” was posted on Twitter by The Bodega on November 23, 2012.
 
“Two elves walk into a bar. A hobbit walks underneath unharmed” was posted on Twitter by Anthony Julian Cinca on September 28, 2013. “Two Elves walk into a bar, The Hobbit laughs and walks under it” was posted on Twitter by Jesus Chris-t and 104 others on January 19, 2014.
 
The joke has been printed on several images. “Hobbit” is replaced with “dwarf” in some versions of the joke.
