“A really bad impressionist walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

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

“A really bad impressionist walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘Why the wrong face?’”

The pun is on the famous “Why the long face?” punchline of the “A horse walks into a bar...” joke. “A really bad impressionist walked into a bar and the barman said: ‘Why the wrong face?’” was posted on Twitter by Roy Manterfield‏ on October 7, 2013.
