“Why did the Oreo go to the dentist?"/"Because it lost its filling.”

The Oreo creme-filled cookie was first sold by the National Biscuit Company of New York City in 1912. A popular Oreo joke is:

Q: Why did the Oreo go to the dentist?
A: Because it lost its filling.


“Joke of the day: Why did the Oreo go to the dentist? because he lost his filling” was cited in Twitter on June 16, 2009. However, the joke didn’t become popular until late 2012.

“Why did the pie go to the dentist?"/"To get a filling.” is a similar joke.
