“A cable TV installer 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 cable TV installer version is:
 
“A cable TV installer walks into a bar and orders a beer. The bartender says, ‘You’ll be served sometime between 7 and 2.’”
 
That is, the bartender offers service just like a cable TV installer. The joke was posted on Twitter by ChicagoScott on March 6, 2012.
