Today we celebrate the birthday of the Oreo cookie and I wonder if 107 years ago, people from Oreo would know how popular they would become.

It was on this date, March 6, 1912, that 2 decoratively embossed chocolate-flavored wafers met up with a rich creme filling. Here are some things that you may not know about the famous cookie.

It was born the same year that the South Pole was discovered and the Titanic sank. My Grandmother, Margaret Brainard Pitcher was 1.

Twist, Lick and Dunk Ritual: Half of all Oreo eater pull apart their cookies before eating. I like to dunk them whole and then stir the milk and drink it when I'm done. I also like to dunk my Oreo's in the cereal bowl when I'm done eating. YUMMY.

Women twist them open more often than men. Is that because they are more twisted???? I'll let you decide.

Oreo cookies never go bad....Well they could, it's just that they never last long enough to GO bad.

1st was the Oreo, then it was the double-stuff Oreos. I wonder if they can make all-stuff-no-cookie Oreos. Oh wait they do, it's called 'cake frosting'. One of my favorite flavors is the 'Birthday Cake Frosting' cookie.

You know what you call someone who dips an Oreo into skim milk? A hypocrite. Thanks to Hawk Listener Tim, we now have a better answer: Skinny Dipper.

Happy Birthday, Oreo and let's keep on dunking!
