Two Guys Walk Into Several Bars…

I kept a copy of the contents of my VAX plan at Grinnell for a while. Here’s a mashup joke I wrote at some point:

Two guys walk into a bar. There’s no one there. They leave and go to another bar where they see some guy urinating all over the place. The bartender is watching and laughing. They are disgusted and go to yet another bar.

Inside, they see a man showing his penis to a crying horse. Once again, the duo leave and move on to a more reputable establishment. On the way in, they pass a panda bear going outside. Once inside, they see the bullet-riddled corpse of a piano player.

“The state of the pubs in this area is quite alarming.”

“I’m afraid your assessment is quite accurate. Shall we sojourn to my flat for a spot of Scotch before the show, then?”

“Yes, let’s.”

“Ask me if I’m a truck.”

I don’t actually remember all of the source jokes. 17 and one half points will be awarded to anyone who can identify the sources for the mashup in the comments.

If you didn’t notice, I just invented the term “mashup joke”. Hurray for me.

    I can identify the laughing bartender/urinating patron, as well as the penis crying horse. The panda rings a bell, but I can’t put my finger on it. The others are a mystery.

    Do you mean VAX like a DEC VAX?

    That’s exactly the VAX that I mean. We had a pretty hot VAX culture when I first started at Grinnell. People would update their plan files every once in a while, and there was a program called autofinger that would tell you who had changed theirs since you last logged in. It was like a little MySpace, except a lot less lame.

    It died out for a while when they replaced the VAX system with web mail. But, eventually, some enterprising CS nerds resurrected it as grinnellplans.com and released it on SourceForge.

    I’ve got your back, Charles.

    The panda was eats, shoots, and leaves.
