A 2011 Cheez-It commercial featured a “not ready” cheese telling this joke to his cheese tester:
Q: Why did the cook get arrested?
A: He was caught beating an egg.
The food joke (which sometimes has “chef” replacing “cook") has been cited in print since at least 2004.

Why did the cook get arrested?
Because he beat an egg! Cheesy, yes I know, but that joke cracks me up! It’s from a Cheez-it commercial that I recently saw and absolutely love.
