“A German walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

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

“A German walks into a bar and asks for a martini. The bartender asks, ‘Dry?’ The German replies, ‘Nein, just one.’”

The joke centers on the German word for the number three—“drei.” “Two Martinis, bitte”—a slightly different version—was cited in 2008. The “one Martini” version became popular in 2013.
