“A giraffe 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 giraffe version was cited in 1993:

“A giraffe walks into a bar and says, ‘High balls on me!’”

A different punchline was used in 2006:

“A giraffe walks into a bar and the bartender asks, anyway. Do you want a longneck? The giraffe replies, Do I have a choice?”
