2018 has been an incredible year for memes so far. Not only has the internet been hard at work turning new content from the likes of the Kardashians and Nicki Minaj into hilarious viral moments, but people have also been resurrecting past films and tv shows and giving them the meme treatment. Everyone from Mike Wazowski to Jigglypuff has taken over the internet over the course of the past few months.

And now another iconic star has joined the roster of meme-able legends: Jo Frost. Jo Frost, for those of you who are either too young to remember or in need of a reminder, was the "supernanny" from the reality tv show, Supernanny. From 2004 to 2008, Jo helped families discipline their unruly children and, over the past few days, one of her lines from the show has become an amazing meme.
The meme is simple. In one of the episodes of the beloved hit series, Jo turns to the camera in a taxi and says the instantly memorable phrase: "you guys are in a crisis, I'm on my way". She says it with such sincerity and urgency that it's, unsurprisingly, the perfect content for meme adaptation. It can be applied to universally relatable situations and brilliantly specific ones too.
Everything from Harry Potter to The Avengers has been applied to the Supernanny meme and it is so funny that we are still laughing at it. With that in mind, we've gathered all of the best "you guys are in a crisis" memes for you in one place. Now what do we have to do to get a Supernanny reboot?
It works for anyone who's ever worked in retail.

Or for prolific popstars who haven't released new music in a while.
When will Robyn Rihanna Fenty return from war?
Actually this applies to a lot of popstars.

Dolores is the worst.
Some people are joking that Jo Frost may appear in Avengers 4.
This would be the greatest crossover event in history.
Others are pointing out that the meme is how the Westboro Baptist Church treats LGBTQ+ people.
