A guy walks into a bar ...

The longest list of bar jokes that I got in an email ...

No one knows when the first joke beginning with the
six words "A guy walks
into a bar . . ." was told, or how it went.

starts just as soon as I tell you that I don't have
any money."

there in the Bible--the
three wise men came from afar."

A man walked into a bar, sat down, and ordered a
beer. As he sipped the

around, he saw that the bar
was empty except for him and the bartender. A few
sips later, another voice
said, "Beautiful shirt." At this, the man calls the
bartender over. "Say, I
must be losing my mind," he tells him. "I keep
hearing these voices say nice
things, and there is not a soul in here but us."
