“Oxygen and Magnesium walk into a bar…” (bar joke)

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

“Oxygen and Magnesium walk into a bar. The bartender says, ‘OMg!’”

The symbols for the chemical elements Oxygen (O) and Magnesium (Mg) combine for “OMg.” OMG means “Oh My God.”

“If you put Oxygen and Magnesium together, you get OMG!” was posted on Twitter on November 4, 2009. “Q: What did the bartender say when oxygen and magnesium walked into his bar? A: OMg” was posted on Twitter on January 30, 2011. The joke has been printed on many images.
