“A BuzzFeed writer 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 BuzzFeed version is:

“A BuzzFeed writer walks into a bar. You won’t believe what happens next!”

“You won’t believe what happens next!” is a famous clickbait line to capture a reader’s attention. The line is sometimes said to describe the content at the websites BuzzFeed and Upworthy.

“An Upworthy journalist walked into a bar and you won’t believe what happened next” was posted on Twitter by Rob Manuel on January 2, 2014. “A BuzzFeed writer walks into a bar. You won’t believe what happens next!” was posted on Twitter on February 22, 2014.


Wikipedia: BuzzFeed
BuzzFeed is an American internet media company based in New York City. The firm is a social news and entertainment company with a focus on digital media and feminism. BuzzFeed was founded in 2006 as a viral lab focusing on tracking viral content, by Jonah Peretti and John S. Johnson III. Kenneth Lerer, co-founder and chairman of The Huffington Post, started as a co-founder and investor in BuzzFeed and is now the executive chairman as well.

Wikipedia: Upworthy
Upworthy is a website for viral content started in March 2012 by Eli Pariser, the former executive director of MoveOn, and Peter Koechley, the former managing editor of The Onion. One of Facebook’s co-founders, Chris Hughes, was an early investor.

Upworthy’s stated mission is “to change what the world pays attention to.” It uses virality to promote stories with a progressive bent on political and social issues.
