“My father walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

“A man walked into a bar...and stayed there for the rest of my childhood.”

“So this man walks into a bar...and he stays there for the rest of my childhood...” was posted on Twitter on April 14, 2010. “A man walked into a bar… and he stated there my entire fucking childhood” was posted on Twitter on October 31. 2012. “My father walks into a bar… And stays there for the rest of my childhood” was posted on Reddit on September 25, 2016.
