The Id, the Ego and the Super Ego are all sitting at a bar...

The title sounds like the beginning of a bar joke. The Id, the Ego and the Super Ego are all sitting at a bar. The Ego turns to the Super Ego and says...

I didn't say it was a joke, I just said it sounded like the start of one. If anybody can invent the remainder of that joke I will by you a coke and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. Okay I can't do that, so make it a coke and a slice of pizza. That's a promise! You can hold me to it. I know and have worked with a hell of a lot of funny and talented writers, but it takes a rare mind to just sit down and make up a joke from start to finish like that. I bet the guy who came up with the idea of the Farmer, The Farmer's daughter and the traveling salesman was some alcoholic comedy savant. I wonder if there is a big book of those types of jokes. I'm off to surf the internet to find out. And to refresh myself on the difference between the Ego and the Super Ego. I know the ID is the one that's all about sex and violence and base human urges. I wonder if I could come up with an anti-joke. The non-polish fellow, the man who isn't French and the not-black guy are lost in the desert...

"Man, that Id guy is really starting to piss me off! If he asks me one more time to explain the inherited instinctive impulses of the individual as part of the unconscious to him, I'm going to go all Super Id on his ass!"

(Sorry, best I can do - I'm not a professional. Tough parameters!)

"hey Super, Id over here says his wife's out of town and he wants to get really drunk and fuck that bartender." and Super says, "Dude, all that guy ever wants to do is get faced and fuck bartenders. What he doesn't realize is that his drinking and self-absorbed behavior has far-reaching consequences to those around him. Remember that time he sold your couch for a half a tab of E?" and Ego says, "I had to watch Millionaire on the floor for a week! So why do we hang out with that Id-iot anyway?" Super, "Because we're sad, repressed losers who use spurious arguments to explain why we never get laid and we live vicariously through him." Ego, "Oh, riiiiight."

Very Funny. I like the ID having consequences on others, very and selling the couch for half a tab of E. I wonder if Fits can top you. Bevis go ask Fits if she can top this with a better joke with the same set-up. Two professionals going at it toe to toe. Fireworks!

I see an animated show in the making. Id, Ego and Super Ego.

The ultimate aim of the ego is not to see something, but to be something. See the link below for more info.

Id goes and fucks the bartender. Ego says " I want some of that". The super-ego tells Ego that don't do it don't want to catch aids. I dont know I tried
