Wow, this comment has so many levels to go through in your brain it's amazing. Not only is the basic thought pattern that you don't expect the outcome to be "To get to the other side" so its funny when you discover that it had no meaning the whole time except now its said so much that the unexpected answer is expected, but due to the amount of comments in this comment section that have the start of that joke with a different outcome, you no longer expect the usual expected answer of this joke that's supposed to be unexpected in the first place only to find out its double not what you expected and it was actually the original joke the whole time instead of being another spinoff joke, bringing the whole joke around for a loop.
