“How do you cook a crocodile?"/"In a ‘croc’ pot.”

The “Crock-Pot” has a pun:

Q: How do you cook a crocodile?
A: In a ‘croc’ pot.

The joke has been cited in print since at least 2000. “Alligator” is sometimes substituted for “crocodile.” Some versions have the crocodile cooking—rather than being cooked—in the “croc” pot.

Wikipedia: Slow cooker
A slow cooker, also known as a Crock-Pot (a trademark that is sometimes used generically in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States of America), is a countertop electrical cooking appliance used for simmering, which requires maintaining a relatively low temperature (compared to other cooking methods such as baking, boiling, and frying), allowing unattended cooking for many hours of boiled dinners, pot roast, soups, stews, and other suitable dishes, including beverages, desserts, and dips.
