2018-01-15T04:52:01-05:00

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A spark plug version is: “A spark plug walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘I’ll serve you, but don’t start anything.’” The joke has been cited in print since at least 2009. “A jumper cable walks into a bar...” is the same joke.
