Jessica Simpson makes fun of her own Chicken of the Sea faux pas

Everybody makes mistakes and Jessica Simpson can sympathize.

The “Public Affair” singer threw back more than a decade with a perfect Instagram joke Sunday.

Simpson posted a screenshot of an article that declared “Whole Foods Discovered Its Chicken Salad Actually Had Tuna,” captioning the photo, “It happens to the best of us.”

The meta joke is 14 years old, but launched one of the most everlasting memes.

On “The Newlyweds,” the reality show that followed Simpson and then-husband Nick Lachey, the singer couldn’t quite figure out what was in Chicken in the Sea.

“Is this chicken what I have, or is this fish?” she asked her new husband.

“I know it’s tuna, but it says Chicken by the Sea. Is that stupid?”

The harmless — yet hilarious — question has followed Simpson for years now, but she’s finally able to poke fun of herself like the rest of us do.
