“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A joke involving the National Security Agency (NSA) is:
“The NSA walks into a bar. Bartender: ‘Got a new joke for you.’ NSA: ‘Heard it.’”
The joke was cited by Nein Quarterly on Twitter on June 12, 2013. The joke was a response to the NSA disclosures of spying that were made famous in 2013 by American computer professional Edward Snowden.
Wikipedia: National Security Agency
The National Security Agency (NSA) is an intelligence organization of the United States government, responsible for global monitoring, collection, and processing of information and data for foreign intelligence and counterintelligence purposes – a discipline known as signals intelligence (SIGINT). NSA is concurrently charged with protection of U.S. government communications and information systems against penetration and network warfare. Although many of NSA’s programs rely on “passive” electronic collection, the agency is authorized to accomplish its mission through active clandestine means, among which are physically bugging electronic systems and allegedly engaging in sabotage through subversive software. Moreover, NSA maintains physical presence in a large number of countries across the globe, where its Special Collection Service (SCS) inserts eavesdropping devices in difficult-to-reach places. SCS collection tactics allegedly encompass “close surveillance, burglary, wiretapping, breaking and entering”.
