“A million guys walk into a Silicon Valley bar…” (bar joke)

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

“A million guys/people walk into a Silicon Valley bar. No one buys anything. Bar declared a massive success.”

“A million guys walk into a Silicon Valley bar. None of them buy anything. The bar is declared a rousing success” was posted on Twitter on October 12, 2011. “A million guys walk into a Silicon Valley bar. No one buys anything. Bar declared massive success” was posted by Paul Stamatiou on Twitter on May 2, 2014. Stamatiou usually gets credit for the joke, even though it is almost identical to the version cited almost three years earlier.

The joke has been printed on several images.
