“An infectious disease walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

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

“An infectious disease walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘We don’t serve infectious diseases here.’ The infectious disease replies, ‘Well, you’re not a very good host.’”

Brian Malow, self-proclaimed as “Earth’s Premier Science Comedian,” popularized the joke in videos from December 2008 and November 2009.

A virus is like Luke Skywalker attacking the Death Star, with humans playing the part of the Empire. Humans have a huge size advantage, but a virus can still win the fight. Science comedian Brian Malow provides a few jokes on this David vs. Goliath battle, including this one:

An infectious disease walks into a bar, and the bartender says “We don’t serve infectious diseases here.”
The infectious disease says, “Well you’re not a very good host.”

IRA FLATOW, host:
This is SCIENCE FRIDAY. I’m Ira Flatow.

Mr. MALOW: I did - I was doing a show - I was asked to do a show with the Koshland Science Museum in D.C. about infectious disease once. I’ll show you the connection between neutrinos and infectious disease eventually.

But because of that, in trying to come up with material about infectious disease, I decided to write some bar jokes like those that we’re talking about. So I did a couple about infectious disease and viruses. And they were so popular in my act that I wrote more of them. And it’s my most popular video on YouTube.

And I’ve seen them - they’re all over the Internet now, unattributed, and the neutrino one, yeah…

FLATOW: Let’s play - we actually have a little bit of…

LICHTMAN: We have a clip of some of your work.
(Soundbite of video)
