“An eel 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 eel version is:

“An eel walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘Back for more, eh (moray)?’”

The joke has been cited in print since at least 2015 and has been printed on an image.

“What did the Italian say after he ate an eel pizza?"/"That’s a moray” is another moray eel joke.


Wikipedia: Moray eel
Moray eels, or Muraenidae, are a cosmopolitan family of eels. The approximately 200 species in 15 genera are almost exclusively marine, but several species are regularly seen in brackish water, and a very few are found in fresh water.
