“Two men walk into a bar…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar…” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” There are several jokes about two or three men walking into a bar and ducking (or not ducking). The following joke is from 1990:
 
“These two guys walk into a bar,,  You think that the second one would have ducked…...”
     
This joke is from 1993:
 
“Three men walking down the street, two walk into a bar - the third ducked.”
 
“Two blondes walk into a building. You’d think one of them would have seen it” is a variation on the bar joke.
