"I am not joking, Mr Weasley, though now that you mention it, I did hear an excellent one over the summer about a troll, a hag, and a leprechaun who all go into a bar -"
Albus Dumbledore to Fred Weasley[src]

There was a joke about a troll, a hag and a leprechaun who all go into a bar with humourous consequences. Albus Dumbledore heard this joke during the summer of 1994 and deemed it "excellent". Before he could reiterate it to Fred Weasley's outburst about the Triwizard Tournament, however, he was interrupted by Minerva McGonagall, and got back to the tournament's details.[1]


Behind the scenes

  • "A [insert person or persons here] walks into a bar..." is a common setup for a joke, to the point where jokes have been made parodying or referencing the setup.[2]
