“Two oranges walk into a bar…” (joke)

“A guy walks into a bar…” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” An orange version is:
 
“Two oranges walk into a bar. One turns to the other and says, ‘Your round.’”
 
“Your round” (of drinks) means something different than “you’re round” (a shape). The joke was posted on the newsgroup rec.arts.sf.fandom on June 1, 1997.
 
“Your round.”/“So are you, you fat bastard!” is a similar joke.

Can’t beat a bad joke though…. 2 oranges walk into a bar, one says to the other, “you’re round…”

Giving Amanda giant sunglasses, Seany asked her to tell a joke. “Two oranges walk into a bar and the other one goes, ‘Your round, your round’,” she laughed.
