“A pirate 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 popular pirate version is:

“A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel sticking out of his pants. The bartender says, ‘Do you know you have a steering wheel in your pants?’ and the pirate says, ‘Aargh! It’s drivin’ me nuts!’”

The joke has been cited in print since at least 2000. “A pirate walks into a bar with a paper towel on his head…” is another pirate version that has been cited in print since 2006.

This pirate walks into a bar, sits on a stool and orders a beer.  The bartender brings his beer, and notices that the pirate has a steering wheel sticking out of his zipper.
So the bartender says to the pirate in a wondering tone, “hey, you know you got a steering wheel sticking out of your zipper?”
The pirate takes a drink off the beer, and says, “Arrr!! It’s drivin’ me nuts!”
