“Three men walk into a bar…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” There are several jokes about two or three men walking into a bar and ducking (or not ducking). The following joke is from 1990:

“These two guys walk into a bar,, You think that the second one would have ducked......”

The following joke is from 1993:

“Three men walking down the street, two walk into a bar - the third ducked.”
