Think Jessica Simpson forgot about her infamous "Chicken of the Sea" confusion? You are so wrong.

More than 13 years after creating a pop culture moment thanks to one dinner meal, the former Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica star decided to have some fun on Twitter.

"#ChickenoftheSea," the singer and fashion designer wrote on social media after posting a picture of a chicken swimming in the ocean blue water.

When another fan replied, "Ok take a bow," Jessica responded with a kisses emoji proving she's in on the joke.

For those who don't get the iconic reference, we are more than happy to explain.

Back in 2003, Jessica was watching TV with her then husband Nick Lachey when eating a can of Chicken of the Sea tuna. While enjoying the food, a question dawned on her.

"Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish?" she asked the 98 Degrees singer. "I know it's tuna, but it says chicken…by the sea?"

Nick tried to explain by stating, "A lot of people eat tuna and a lot of people eat chicken, so it's like the ‘Chicken of the Sea.'"

After Newlyweds ended in 2005, Jessica has primarily stayed away from the small screen. Instead, the proud mom decided to focus on her family with husband Eric Johnson, her music comeback and her successful Jessica Simpson Collection brand.

And for those still hoping for a reality TV comeback, Jessica recently made it clear that she has moved on.

"That's very rear view," she told Savannah Guthrie on Today. "I mean I'm very open with fans and the media but having a camera on me at all times. I mean, we all know I stick my foot in my mouth a little bit too much so now that I'm a mom, I probably have to keep it together a little bit better."
