“What do you call a dinosaur made of glass?"/"A Py-rex.”

Pyrex is a brand of glassware and kitchenware. The “Pyrex” name has also been used for for non-glass kitchen utensils and cookware. “Pyrex” has nothing to do with the Tyrannosaurus dinosaur known as “T-Rex,” but there are jokes.

“What is a dog made of glass called? Py-rex.“ was printed in the book Pet Jokes That Will Make You Howl! (2005) by Terry Pierce and Ruth Musgrave. “RT @Thirtyt: In the style of @Knaw_Says was Py-rex an ovenproof transparent dinosaur?” was posted on Twitter by Gavin Cameron on June 9, 2010.

Wikipedia: Pyrex
Pyrex (trademarked as PYREX) is a brand introduced by Corning Inc. in 1915 for a line of clear, low-thermal-expansion borosilicate glass used for laboratory glassware and kitchenware. It was later expanded to include clear and opal ware products made of soda-lime glass.

Corning no longer manufactures or markets consumer glass kitchenware and bakeware. Corelle Brands, which was spun off from Corning Inc. in 1998 under the name Corning Consumer Products Company and since renamed, continues to license the pyrex (all lowercase) brand for their tempered soda-lime glass line of kitchenware products sold for the consumer market in the United States, South America, and Asia. In the regions of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, the PYREX (all uppercase) brand is licensed by International Cookware for use on their borosilicate glass products. The brand name has also been used for non-glass kitchen utensils and cookware in various regions for several decades.

Yes, T-Rex was a fearsome dinosaur, but the Py-rex could withstand temperatures up to 450 degrees. #nowUknow
