“This orange juice says shake well before drinking…” (drinking joke)

Some juice drinks (such as orange juice) require a shake before drinking. A joke on this was posted on Twitter by MikeP on August 19, 2015:

“This orange juice says shake well before drinking.  *shakes juice and puts back in fridge then opens beer.”

The drinking joke has had many reposts.

“Why did John jump up and down before drinking his juice?"/"The box said “Shake well‘“ is another “shake well” joke. “Why did the little kid dance on the jar of jam?"/"Because the top said, ‘Twist to open’” is a “twist to open” joke.
