“Hockey is much better if you imagine the teams are fighting over the world’s last Oreo”

A hockey puck looks to some, perhaps, like an Oreo cookie. “Hockey is more enjoyable if you pretend they’re fighting over the world’s last oreo” was posted on Twitter by Kate on July 2, 2012. “HOCKEY IS SO MUCH MORE FUN TO WATCH IF YOU PRETEND THE PUCK IS THE WORLDS LAST OREO” was posted on Twitter by jad also on July 2, 2012.
 
Origin of the line is unknown. The hockey saying has been printed on many images.
 
         
Wikipedia: Oreo
Oreo (/ˈɔːrioʊ/) is a brand of cookie usually consisting of two chocolate wafers with a sweet crème filling, marketed as “Chocolate Sandwich Cookie”. Introduced in 1912, Oreo is the bestselling cookie in the United States. As of 2018, the version sold in the U.S. is made by the Nabisco division of Mondelēz International.
