“Man goes to the doctor with a strawberry growing out of his head” (joke)

A strawberry-and-cream joke is:

“A man goes to the doctor with a strawberry growing out of his head. The doctor says, ‘I’ll give you some cream to put on it.’”

The joke was posted on the newsgroup alt.solipsism on July 12, 1999. The joke is frequently credited to British prop comedian Tommy Cooper (1921-1984), but earlier citations have not been found.
