“What did the salt say to the pepper?"/"Season’s greetings.”

A joke about salt and pepper shskers is:

Q: What did the salt say to the pepper?
A: Season’s greetings.


The food joke has been cited in print since at least 1995.

“What did the salt say to the pepper?"/"Hey. what’s shaking?” is the same joke, but with a different punchline.
