“Sixteen sodium atoms walk into a bar… followed by Batman” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” An unusual variation of the joke is:

“Sixteen sodium atoms walk into a bar, followed by Batman.”

The chemical symbol for sodium is “Na.” The Batman television show theme is: “Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na, Batman!”

“Sodium x 16 = BATMAN” was cited on Twitter on December 17, 2010. “Sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium sodium. BATMAN” was cited on Twitter on February 28, 2011. “What do Batman & 16 Sodium atoms have in common? Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na” was cited on Twitter on March 23, 2012.

“Sixteen sodium atoms walk into a bar, shortly followed by batman” was cited on Twitter on March 30, 2013. Several images explain the joke.
