Today (3/6) we celebrate the birthday of the Oreo cookie and I wonder if 108 years ago, the people from Oreo would know how popular they would still be today?

It was on this date, March 6th, 1912 that two decoratively embossed chocolate-flavored wafers met up with a rich creme filling. Here's a question for you? What do you call someone who dips an Oreo into skim milk? The answer at the end.

Here are some things that you may not know about the famous cookie:

It was born the year that the South Pole was discovered and the Titanic sank. On a personal note, my grandmother, Magaret Brainard Pitcher was 1.

Twist, Lick and Dunk Ritual: Half of all Oreo eaters 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 might, it's just that they never last long enough to go bad...At least at my house.

The Oreo came first, 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."

Now the moment we've all been waiting for. What do you call someone who dips an Oreo into skim milk? A hypocrite.  Another answer that was given to us by Hawk listener Tim. Skinny Dipper. That's a better answer.
