KeKe Palmer is known as one of the most organically hilarious celebrities in Hollywood, and the viral response to a segment in one of her recent interviews proves that she can be comedy gold without even trying.

A meme was created from the Hustlers star's response to a question posed to her during a lie detector test interview with Vanity Fair. After answering some basic questions about her birthplace, government name and dating preferences, she was asked to identify 46th United States Vice President Dick Cheney in a photo, and her response was perfect.

"I hate to say it, I hope I don't sound ridiculous. I don't know who this man is," she said, shaking her head in confusion. "He could be walking down the street and I wouldn't know a thing. Sorry to this man."
