What started as Shirley Ceaser’s iconic reply to the “Grandma what’s for thanksgiving dinner” question is now an internet meme encouraging people to turn their dinners into a U Name It Challenge.

The gospel sermon has been edited to loop around Shirley’s chant of “I got beans, greens, potatoes, tomatoes, lambs, rams, hogs, dogs, chickens, turkeys, rabbits, you name it”, and popularized just in time for Thanksgiving.

Widely circulated on Instagram and Twitter, the clip has now been immortalized into a challenge, with many remixes popping up all over .

As always, we’ve done our homework, so here’s a compilation of some of the best “U Name It Challenge” entries:
