Grape is in operation theatre, getting a surgery done and the worried people of the Internet are queuing up outside the hospital.
Did you ever think that you'd read that sentence in your lifetime?
As strange as it may sound, the newest (and perhaps the weirdest) meme to surface of late is a meme about an innocent grape which is under surgical knives and people keep repeating "They Did Surgery on a Grape" - while sharing photoshopped images of grapes in varied scenarios and unusual situations.
Don't believe us? Please check out what's happening below.
Grape memes soon started raisin' on the web.

But what gave birth to such a weird meme, you ask?
Surgeons at the Edward Hospital in the US had actually performed a surgery on a grape - eight years ago.
'Da Vinci Surgical System,' the complex machine performed the surgery on the grape by gently peeling off its skin, and then stitching it back on.
Calling it the most advanced robotic medical technology available then, the hospital shared the surgical procedure in a 2010 video, which thanks to Google's algorithms, YouTube decided to randomly throw it on some users' recommendation list in 2018.
Edward Hospital now has the da Vinci Si Surgical System, the most advanced robotic technology available which can be used for a range of minimally invasive procedures in gynecology, urology, thoracic and general surgery. For surgeons, da Vinci's benefits include better vision, more precision and more control due to the system's magnification and 3D capabilities, elimination of tremors and multiple degrees and directions of movement. Through da Vinci's robotic wrists which are capable of rotating 540 degrees, surgeons are able to perform movements that aren't possible with human hands.
The grape surgery got furthermore attention when Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Australia shared the behind the scenes from a surgical procedure performed on grape by the robots in May, this year.
