If you thought social media is making people lose their minds, you are right. To put it plainly, nothing really makes sense anymore and it will truly get worse from here on. 

Case in point: A photo of a basic egg was uploaded on January 4 with the simple aim to become the most-liked Instagram post ever. Nine days later it had achieved the aim and beat American reality star Kylie Jenner's birth announcement with over 44 million likes. Yes, people chose an egg over Kylie Jenner and her daughter, Stormi. 

Unlike Jenner, the egg is neither a makeup mogul or a billionaire. It is just an egg. Take a dekko.

No one really knows who uploaded the image and why, yet. 

Do you feel like you are missing the joke? Well, you are not alone (and, there is no joke. It is simply a really popular egg). The post is riddled with questions by many commenters wondering if they have missed out on the latest Internet joke.   

Meanwhile, jumping on the bandwagon some netizens are also using the hashtags #LikeTheEgg #EggSoldiers #EggGang to make memes and post equally nonsensical. Check them out.
