“A virologist, an epidemiologist and a scientist walk into a bar…” (bar joke)

Entry in progress—B.P.
 
“A guy walks into a bar…” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” However, during the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, most bars were closed.
 
“A man doesn’t walk into a bar…,” “A man doesn’t walk into a pub…,” “An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman don’t walk into a bar” and “An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman walk into a bar. Those were the days” are related jokes.

Of course they didn’t.
