“A bar walks into a man. Oops! Wrong frame of reference” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A physics version is:

“A bar walks into a man. Oops! Wrong frame of reference.”

The joke was posted on the newsgroup rec.humor on December 28, 2000.


Wikipedia: Frame of reference
In physics, a frame of reference (or reference frame) consists of an abstract coordinate system and the set of physical reference points that uniquely fix (locate and orient) the coordinate system and standardize measurements.
