The photo was so awesome, in fact, it earned Schumer a tweet from the Art Institute of Chicago, which houses the original American Gothic painting.

"Dear @amyschumer, you are awesome," the Institute's account tweeted. "And the fork is a very nice touch : ) Stop by and see us some time! Love, the Art Institute."
