I'm glad you asked when you didn't get the joke.
There is a nursery rhyme that goes like this:
Fiddle dee dee, fiddle dee dee,
Now read the joke again and look at the name in the last line.
When people want to cuss, to say a bad word, etc and can't because of their religion or because there are children around they will say "Oh, fiddle dee dee." instead. It's a way to substitute for something stronger.
