“Oedipus, Aphrodite and Midas walk into a bar…” (bar joke)

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A Greek mythology version was posted on both Reddit—Dadjokes and Reddit—Jokes on March 9, 2021:

“Oedipus, Aphrodite and Midas walk into a bar… I forgot the rest of the joke but I can assure you it’s mother-fucking gold.”

Several commenters suggested that Aphrodite (Goddess of Love) can be removed from the joke. “This is motherfucking gold: Oedipus and Midas walk into a bar” had been posted on Twitter by Aaargghhh on November 7, 2018. 


Wikipedia: Oedipus
Oedipus (UK: /ˈiːdɪpəs/, also US: /ˈɛdə-/; Greek: Οἰδίπους Oidípous meaning “swollen foot") was a mythical Greek king of Thebes. A tragic hero in Greek mythology, Oedipus accidentally fulfilled a prophecy that he would end up killing his father and marrying his mother, thereby bringing disaster to his city and family.

Wikipedia: Midas
Midas (/ˈmaɪdəs/; Greek: Μίδας) is the name of one of at least three members of the royal house of Phrygia.

The most famous King Midas is popularly remembered in Greek mythology for his ability to turn everything he touched into gold.
