'It happens!': Jessica Simpson pokes fun at herself for famous chicken-tuna question as Whole Foods found tuna in their chicken salad

Jessica Simpson has no problem poking fun at herself.

The 36-year-old posted a screenshot from a Time article titled 'Whole Foods Discovered Its Chicken Salad Actually Had Tuna.'

And back when Jessica was rising to fame on MTV's Newlyweds, she pondered if Chicken Of The Sea was a can of tuna or chicken.

Therefore, the fashion mogul hilariously captioned the magazine snap: 'It happens to the best of us.' 

In 2003, Jessica starred with then-husband Nick Lachey on the reality show that showcased the two lovebirds' daily grind.

In one episode, Jessica ate Chicken Of The Sea brand tuna and asked the question that went viral and shot her further into the fame stratosphere.

'Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna but it says, Chicken By the Sea. Is that stupid?,' asked the gorgeous blonde to her exasperated husband.

Nick eventually let her know that it was indeed tuna and Jessica has been living it down ever since, but, obviously, with great humor.

The couple divorced in 2005 and Jessica went on to marry Eric Johnson and together they share five-year-old daughter Maxwell and four-year-old son Ace.

Meanwhile, The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced on July 1 that a poultry farm has recalled about 440 pounds of mislabeled buffalo chicken salad products.

The products contained tuna, an allergen, and were distributed to around 35 Whole Foods in Western Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.

However, there have been no reports of anyone suffering ill-effects.
