We use docker

A: We use docker
B: Oh cool, why? what is it?
A: No-one knows, but we all use it

This is a joke making fun of about "the cult of the new" in software engineering. Often people just use new things because they are new, and not because they are actually serving any purpose that another, older, technology is serving.

That being said, this joke makes it sound much more absurd than it actually is - new things are cool to learn, because they have unrealized potential. Once we know them, then we can apply them properly, and hopefully spend less time doing our jobs.

Looking at this common behavior from an absurd, over the top, standpoint makes it funny.
