No jewels, no celebrity endorsements. This very ordinary egg beat reality television star Kylie Jenner’s birth announcement to snag the title of the most-liked Instagram post ever
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.
the internet has destroyed my sense of humor so much to the point where i genuinely think it’s hysterical that a picture of an egg is about to replace Kylie Jenner’s baby post as the most liked picture on instagram— caitlyn rae🤠 (@xc8lyn) January 13, 2019
Human race: *can't agree on literally anything and will NOT meet in the middle*— Grace (@TheGee232) January 14, 2019
