That is the opening line to a joke with a genre all its own. Here are a dozen I found at various sites around the web.
1. An amnesiac walks into a bar and asks the bartender, "Do I come here often?"

2. A guy with dyslexia walks into a bra.

3. A young Texan walks into a bar and orders a drink. "Got any ID?" asks the bartender. The Texan replies, "About what?"

4. A pair of jumper cables walk into a bar. The bartender says, "You can come in here, but you better not start anything!"

5. A penguin walks into a bar and asks the bartender, "Has my father been in here?" The bartender says, "I don't know. What does he look like?"

6. A termite walks into a bar and asks, "Is the bar tender here?"

7. A cheeseburger walks into a bar, and the bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve food in here."

8. A dog with his foot wrapped in a bloody bandage hobbles into a Western saloon. He sidles up to the bar and announces: "I'm lookin' fer the man that shot my paw."

9. A skeleton walks into a bar. The bartender asks, "What'll you have?" The skeleton says, "Give me a beer, and a mop."

10. A polar bear, a giraffe and a penguin walk into a bar. The bartender says, "What is this, some kind of joke?"

11. A guy walks into a bar in Cork, in Ireland, and asks the barman: "What's the quickest way to get to Dublin?" "Are you walking or driving?" asks the barman. "Driving," says the man. "That's the quickest way," says the barman.

12. René Descartes is in a bar at closing time. The bartender asks him if he'd like another drink. Descartes says, "I think not," and he disappears.

Not really. This is the stuff that entertains me. Seeing the silly stuff on the web - the number of sites that contain stupid and/or amusing content. On occasion, amusing only to me, perhaps. Not trying to act offended, really, just admitting that internet crap like this amuses the hell out of me.

Naked blonde walks into a bar with a poodle under one arm, and a two-foot salami under the other. The bartender says, I guess you won't be needing a drink. Naked lady says...

I've been waiting 22 years to hear the punchline this one.

A Grasshopper walks into a bar and orders a drink. Bartender says, "You know there's a drink named after you, huh?"

Grasshopper says, "They named a drink "Steve"?

Family Guy had one once. In on scene a priest and a rabbi walk in to a bar, and they are about to enter, the rabbi looks at the priest and says, "Say, have you hear the one about us?"

Amy Austin | September 19, 2007
Heheh... good one, considering I don't usually find Family Guy all that funny.

A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel attached to his crotch.

Bewildered, the bartender says "Pardon me, cap'n, but did you know that you've got your ships wheel stuck to your crotch??"

"Aaarrr! ", the pirate replies. "It's drivin' me nuts."

Steve West scours the Web searching for interest or absurdity and then shakes his head ruefully when he finds it. Read more »

Catching Up On 2011

Not that I think my life is that interesting but writing about stuff is a little therapeutic. Highlights in a nutshell: Both girls are routinely making Honor Roll. The work Brenda and I have to do to help make that happen - not routine. Go »

Crazy For You, Baby

Recent conversation with Brenda: me: You know how crazy I am for you? Brenda: Crazy enough to raise three kids. me: I'm crazy enough to ignore the voices in my head when we talk. Go »

Toilets R Us

I got a thing for cool looking toilets. What can I say? I'd like most of these to be in Barbie's Dream House except for that face-to-face absurdity. Go »

Christmas Post #19: More Weird Plushies

First came The Godfather horsehead pillow; next came virus plush toys; now there's road kill. Yes, nothing says warmth and comfort like road pizza cat although I'm a little disappointed that none of them appear to be the scratch-and-sniff variety. Go »

Homecoming

Brenda and I went to closing for our new house today. Everything went smoothly and an hour and a half later I left with the keys in my pocket. We're moving this weekend so I'll be a little scarce here. Go »

The Real Colon Blow Cereal

Holy metaphors, Batman! This recent All-Bran commercial from Kellogg's touts its ability to aid one in shitting enough bricks to build a barbecue. Go »
