LOL: This Shirley Caesar Clip Has Everyone Ready for Thanksgiving

These memes are too good.

Published November 14, 2016

While some have been finding solace in the Barack Obama/Joe Biden memes, others have turned to the fact that Thanksgiving is right around the corner for comfort.

Iconic gospel singer Shirley Caesar has become the centerpiece of a new meme and subsequent internet challenge, and it's already bringing us some much-needed joy.

The video clip making viral rounds on social media is an excerpt from a live performance of "Hold My Mule." The legendary gospel sermon has been edited to revolve around Caesar's chant, "beans, greens, potatoes, tomatoes," in response to the question, "Grandma, what are you cooking for Thanksgiving?"

Musicians such as Chris Brown and Pete Rock have helped the meme get the attention it deserves online, with someone already mashing up some video footage to create a Beyoncé-themed version.

Take a look at some hilarious examples of those playing along with the #UNAMEITCHALLENGE in the posts below.

U name it!!!!😂
