We're Three Weeks Into 2019 And An Egg Has Beaten Kylie Jenner's World Record For Most Instagram Likes

Clearly, they're not done with us.


When I first logged onto my Instagram account I was very confused to be seeing almost all of my followers post the same picture of a brown egg. After tapping through multiple stories, I finally decided to click and find out what this whole thing was about.

On January 4th, the anonymous run Instagram account @world_record_egg posted the picture above with the caption:

"Let's set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this 🙌 #LikeTheEgg #EggSoldiers #EggGang"

At first, I didn't want to play into the user's game of trying become viral over such a ridiculous post and simply kept scrolling. However, ignoring it and going about my day seemed to be impossible. The egg was everywhere. Other celebrities were in on the game, as well. So naturally, I gave in and decided that double tapping was not a big deal and that the person might not even reach their goal. No more than 24 hours after I liked the post, they not only reached their goal but were on a steady climb to surpass it.

The egg didn't take this feat lightly, in fact, they posted this photo below on their story in response to their acquired fame.

What a time it is indeed. A time where it's this easy for people to gain publicity or celebrity status. I never would have guessed this is how we would ring in 2019.

When the egg announced that they would be releasing merchandise, I thought to myself, how very typical and smart to profit off of all this attention. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they donate 10% of every purchase to a new mental health charity each day.

As a way to foreshadow the big things to come, the account posted this picture this week.

What does the crack in the egg mean? How long until it breaks? What will be in it? I guess we will just have to wait and see what bold move the egg does next because clearly, they're not done with us.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
