“Two sheep from Boston walk into a baaaaaaa” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar…”  is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A sheep version is:
     
“Two sheep from Boston walk into a baaaaaaa.”
     
The sheep were going to say “baaa,” but, being from Boston, it adds certainty that they would drop the “r” and say “baaa” and not “bar.”
