It wasn't that long ago that I posted about the fate of four photons: one reflected from the surface of the beer, one passed right through the beer, one was absorbed into the beer, and the last one got scattered. Naturally, that got me thinking about whether I could come up with four golly whumpus knee slappers about the quirky behavior of photons in a bar. I got more than four. A few of these tuned up in Google searches. The rest are original.
An infrared photon walked into a bar and said, "is it hot in here, or is it just me?"
An xray photon walked into a bar. The bartender says, "can I get you something to drink?" The xray photon said, "no, I'm just having a look inside!"
A green photon walked into a bar. The bartender said "you look fluorescent!" The photon turned red, and left.
A pink photon walked into a bar. The bartender knew that pink photons don't exist, so he said, "say... you know... we don't get many pink photons around here..." The pink photon shot back "Not at these prices you won't!"
The bartender was fed up with the revelry of the photons, so he turned out the lights and they were gone.
A photon stopped at the bar and asked if there was a room to rent. The bartender said "Sure thing. Can I take your bag up to your room?" The photon said "no, I am traveling light."
A 450 nanometer photon walks into a bar. The bartender says, "why so blue?"
A photon walks into a bar. The bartender says, "what'll you have?" The photon says "light beer".
