“An infra-red photon 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 photon version is:

“An infra-red photon walks into a bar and says, ‘Is it hot in here or is it just me?’”

Brian Malow, self-proclaimed as “Earth’s Premier Science Comedian,” created the joke and popularized it in a November 2009 performance video.  There are other “photon walks into a bar” jokes, but this is the most popular.

I watched a show of a science comedian, Brian Malow, today. Yes, there is such a profession - exciting! I think he was pretty good; not excellent, but decently funny. At the end of the show he came up with multiple ‘bar’ jokes, aiming for a smaller fraction of the audience with each new joke. I am sure that at least two of the people who read this blog will enjoy the jokes smile
