The written prepared statements from former FBI Director James Comey's much-anticipated testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee were released Wednesday night to the joy of Twitter users everywhere. While the testimony was expected to reveal more about the events leading up to Comey's abrupt firing, his conversations with President Donald Trump, and give more insight into the (several times denied) investigations into allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential race, it really was only a matter of time before the first wave of Comey memes began.

The veritable spy novel full of word salad presented in the statements included mentions of hookers, clouds, a grandfather clock, and alleged #casual demands for loyalty among descriptions of some deeply uncomfortable exchanges between the POTUS and Comey. And that doesn't even include the takes on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's "normal New York City conversation" remarks.

The good people of the internet — who have undoubtedly been rocking back and forth muttering "covfefe" to themselves with excitement heading into Thursday's big event — didn't disappoint. Here's just a few of the most fire memes to moisturize your skin, fix your split ends, and cure all that ails you before you tune in to watch the testimony on Thursday morning.
