‘I hear ISIS is taking credit for it’: Dana Perino’s post sharing Super Bowl dish goes hilariously haywire

Fox News anchor Dana Perino inadvertently launched an internet meme when she shared what looked like a game day dip gone wrong.

The co-host of ‘The Five” told her colleague, Greg Gutfeld, on Monday that she had never had anything go viral, referring to a photo she posted of a cheesy dip she made for the Super Bowl on Sunday.

“Well, that deserved to go viral because it seems like it might be diseased. You know how I always say that Twitter is like the bathroom wall? That’s the bathroom stall,” Gutfeld replied, mercilessly mocking his co-host’s concoction during “The Daily Briefing” on Monday.

“So yesterday I made queso for the SuperBowl and then I, maybe mistakenly, posted a photo online with the caption ‘I made queso’ and the Twitterverse sort of melted down like the cheese that was left out in the sun too long,” the former press secretary to President George W. Bush explained.

Perino posted a photo Sunday of her less-than-appetizing looking dip with the simple caption, “I made queso.”

Thousands of Twitter users responded, some of which Perino highlighted on her show on Fox News.

Perino explained that she found the recipe for her queso on the internet, noting that it was supposed to be from Chili’s. But the restaurant chain broke the bad news to the Fox News host in a tweet on Monday.

Chili’s came back with some encouragement for Perino, however, tweeting their “respect” and calling her “brave.”

Perino also responded to some of the tweets questioning her dip-making skills.

Gutfeld rolled out a collection of analogies for the concoction later on “The Five,” poking fun at his co-host over her “inedible” creation.

“It looks like the leftovers from all the oil changes at Jiffy Lube,” Getfeld noted. “It’s the bronzer run-off from a bikini contest, a fondue pot from Three Mile Island. I hear ISIS is taking credit for it.”

Meanwhile, the memes inspired by Perino’s original tweet almost turned out to be more fun than the big game itself on Sunday, with Vox declaring it “the breakout meme of the Super Bowl.”
