“Two peanuts walk into a bar…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar…” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A peanut version is:
   
“Two peanuts walked into a bar. One was a salted (assaulted).”
     
“Two peanuts walk into a bar. One was a-salted…” was printed in the Edmonton (Alberta) Journal on November 12, 1993.
   
Sometimes the peanuts are walking out of the bar. “Two peanuts walk out of a bar, and one was a salted” was posted on the newsgroup free.jokes on July 19, 2006.
       
“Two peanuts went for a walk through a particularly rough section of town. One was a salted”—a non-bar joke version—was cited in print in 1953.
