Let's get it started with two anti-jokes:

A man walks into a bar, he says ouch.

A man walks into a bar, his crippling alcoholism is tearing his family apart.

My favorite is:

A classic (slightly longer than your example, maybe not the form you're looking for but it's my favorite joke)

Pirate walks into a bar with a ship's wheel attached to the front of his pants. He sits down on a stool with great difficulty and orders some rum.

As the bartender's pouring his drink, he says "Hey, buddy, can't help but ask, but what's up with the ship's wheel attached to the front of your pants?"

Pirate says: "Arrr. It's drivin' me nuts!"

Also, the classic,

Long John Silver walked into a bar with a steering wheel in his pants. The bartender said, "What's that?" and Long John Silver said, "I don't know, but it's drivin' me nuts."

I don't know why this is a "guy walked into a bar" joke, but that's how I heard it.

The 'pirate with the steering wheel on his junk' joke is my favorite joke. Ever.

And here's a joke that's kinda what you want:

Hooo! Love that joke.

A piece of rope walks into a bar, sits down, and orders a drink.

Bartender sighs, and points to the sign behind the bar: "WE DON'T SERVE ROPES"

Rope leaves the bar, goes off into an alley, contorts himself a bit as only a rope can do, and ruffles his hair a bit, before returning.

"Hey! Ain't you the rope that was just in here a second ago?"

"No...I'm a frayed knot."

Oh, and this:

A piece of string walks into a bar. The bartender yells at him, "Hey! We don't serve your kind in here!" The string replies, "You don't serve string, huh?" The bartender reiterates, "Hell no, we don't!" The string pauses for a moment, then ties himself into a knot and messes up one of his ends. The bartender shouts, "Hey! I thought I told you we don't serve string in here! You're string, ain't ya?" The string replies, "Frayed knot."

Ba-dum-dum...PSSSHHHH!!

Two guys walk into a bar. Which is funny, because you'd think the second one would have seen it.

And my all-time favorite:
A duck walks into a bar and asks, "Got any grapes?"

The bartender, confused, tells the duck no. The duck thanks him and leaves.

The next day, the duck returns and asks, "Got any grapes?"

Again, the bartender tells him, "No -- the bar does not serve grapes, has never served grapes and, furthermore, will never serve grapes." The duck thanks him and leaves.

The next day, the duck returns, and again asks "Got any grapes?" The bartender yells, "Listen, you stupid duck! This is a bar! We do not serve grapes! If you ask for grapes again, I will nail your stupid duck feet to the bar and use you as a bottle opener for the rest of your stupid duck life!"

The duck shrugs and leaves.

The next day the duck comes back to the bar. He hops up on the stool, looks the bartender straight in the eye, and asks, "Got any nails?"

Confused, the bartender says no.

"Good!" says the duck. "Got any grapes?"

He asks the guy next to him what's going on, and he says the jokes have been told so many times, people just yell out their numbers instead of retelling them. So he yells out #27! but nobody laughs.

One of my favorites, but I got the text here since I'm terrible at telling jokes:

A panda walks into a bar, sits down and orders a sandwich. He eats the sandwich, pulls out a gun and shoots the waiter dead. As the panda stands up to go, the bartender shouts, "Hey! Where are you going? You just shot my waiter and you didn't pay for your sandwich!"

The panda yells back at the bartender, "Hey man, I'm a PANDA! Look it up!"

The bartender opens his dictionary and sees the following definition for panda: "A tree dwelling marsupial of Asian origin, characterized by distinct black and white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves."

These were my kids' favorites, and they could never tell them right:

A man goes to a bar with his Chihuahua. He goes up to the bar and asks for a drink. The bartender says "You can't bring that dog in here!"

The guy, without missing a beat, says, "This is my seeing-eye dog."

The bartender looks at the man, looks at the Chihuahua and says, "No, I don't think so. They do not have Chihuahuas as seeing-eye dogs."

The man pauses for a half-second and replies "What?!?! They gave me a Chihuahua?!?"

And...

A little piggy walks into the bar, gets drunk and asks the bartender, "Where's the bathroom?" The bartender points to the door and he rushes in, uses the facilities, thanks the bartender and leaves.

The next day, a little piggy walks into the bar, gets drunk and asks the bartender, "Where's the bathroom?" The bartender points to the door and he rushes in, uses the facilities, thanks the bartender and leaves.

On the third day, a little piggy walks into the bar, gets drunk and asks the bartender, "Where's the bathroom?" The bartender points to the door and he rushes in, uses the facilities, thanks the bartender and leaves.

And on the fourth day, a little piggy walks into the bar, gets drunk and asks the bartender, "Where's the bathroom?" The bartender points to the door and he rushes in, uses the facilities, thanks the bartender and leaves.

Guy walks into a bar, orders a beer, sits down. Suddenly he hears a voice saying "Good evening sir, and may I say how handsome you're looking tonight!" The guy looks around... doesn't see anyone nearby. Puzzled, he gets back to his beer. A voice says "And my word, that's a smart outfit. Really suits you!". With some horror, the guy realises that the voice is coming from the bowl of peanuts on the bar in front of him. Shaken, he gets up and walks over to the jukebox, thinking some good music might drown out the impossible talking peanuts. As he reaches for a coin, an aggressive voice emerges from the jukebox.

"What the fuck are you looking at, you ugly fat shite?"

Reeling, the man looks around, but no... no nearby ventriloquists. The voice definitely came from the jukebox.

"I'm talking to you, shit-for-brains! Are you just gonna stand there gawping or are you gonna play some music, you slack-jawed cretin?"

Much distressed, the man stumbles back to the bar. The barman says, "Are you okay sir, you look... unwell."

"I'm.. I think I'm going mad. First the peanuts tell me how handsome I am, next the jukebox insults me."

The barman smiles understandingly and says, "Ah, well you see, the peanuts are complimentary but the jukebox is out of order."

Kinetic 3 said, "I can't believe you forgot this one!!!"

A guy walks into the bar at the top of the Hancock Tower in Boston and has some drinks and is there for a few hours.

Another guy comes and sits next to him.

The first guy who has been there for a while looks at the man and says to him, "You know there's a nice breeze outside and if you jump out it will blow you right back in."

The second guy doesn't agree and tells him to prove it. So the first guy jumps out the window and comes soaring right back in.

The second guy asks him to do it one more time. So, the first guy jumps out and the nice breeze takes him right back into the bar.

By now, the second guy is starting to believe him and decides he needs to try this. He then jumps out and falls down to his death.

The bartender turns to the first guy and says, "Superman, you're such an asshole when you're drunk."

This one is called the "Rob Potter joke," named for the kid we heard it from in middle school:

A guy walks into a bar and puts a shot glass down on a table. He says to the bartender, "I bet you fifty bucks I can sit on this barstool, you spin me around as fast as you want while I piss, and every single drop lands in that shot glass."

The bartender says, "Sure." The guy whips it out, the bartender spins him around, piss goes everywhere- on the bar, on the floor, some even hits the bartender in the face, but he just laughs, because he knows he made an easy fifty bucks.

The guy pays up. The bartender says, "I gotta know, buddy, why would you make such a stupid bet??"

The guy says, "I just bet that guy over in the corner a hundred bucks I could make you laugh by pissing in your face."

A guy walks into a bar and sees a sign on the wall that says "If you can make my horse laugh, I'll give you $50." He motions to the bartender and says "I'd like to give that a shot." The bartender says, "Ok, but I'll warn you - nobody has ever made the thing crack a smile, much less laugh." The man insists, and so they proceed to the stable out back of the bar. The man walks up to the horse and whispers something into the horse's ear, at which point the horse starts laughing uncontrollably. The bartender, surprised and confused, pays the man $50.

A week later, the same man sees a new sign in the bar: "If you can make my horse cry, I'll pay you $50. He signals the bartender, they head out back. The man walks up to the horse, does something with his hands, and the horse starts bawling - tears unmistakably rolling down its face.

The bartender hands over the money and says, "Ok, I'm done with these bets, but I have to know - how did you do it?" The man replies, "Well, last week, I told your horse that I had a bigger dick that he did. This week I showed him."

I told this joke to a British coworker once, and she just looked at me afterwards and said "yeah but, why does he have to be a pirate?"

I guy visiting Britain from America was told this joke: "A pedestrian, an equestrian, and a cyclist each passed a young lady who smiled and waved at each one. Which of them was actually acquainted with the lass?" The guy said he didn't know. "The horseman knew her!"

The man returns home and tells the joke to his buddies: "Three guys passed a girl, one was walking, one was riding a horse, and one was on a bike. She smiles and waves at each guy. Which of the guys actually knew her?"

The man's buddies shrug their shoulders and he says, "I don't know either, but the answer's horse shit."

A bear walks into a bar in Minneapolis, and sits down at a table. The waitress, wearing a dress that's just a little too tight, comes up and says, "I'm sorry, but we don't serve beers to bears in bars in Minneapolis." So the bear gets angry, eats her, then walks up to the bartender. "Can I get a beer?" The bear asks. The bartender says, "I'm sorry, but we don't serve beers to bears on drugs in bars in Minneapolis."

The bear says, "I'm not on drugs!"

The bartender replies, "Oh, yeah? What about that bar bitch you ate?"
