A photo of an egg is now the most liked thing ever on Instagram

This otherwise unassuming zygotic capsule has scrambled to Instagram’s number one position, beating reality TV star Kylie Jenner’s February 2018 baby announcement which, the social media users have now decided, wasn’t everything it was cracked up to be.

Posted over the weekend by one-time account EGG GANG, “world_record_egg” is now exactly what it was destined to be with over 25.7 million likes at publish time.

Jenner’s post, in comparison, has only 18.2 million likes – finally confirming, perhaps, which came first between the egg or the wrinkly pink thing. It’s the egg, guys. Science is solved.

In the meantime, though, Jenner is mega-rich at an estimated net worth of about $900 million and the egg doesn’t even matter.
