The world record egg

By now, I’m sure we have all seen the Instagram post that has taken the internet by storm. A simple photo of an egg was posted for the sole purpose of breaking the world record for the most likes on Instagram. Kylie Jenner previously held this record with a post of her newborn daughter, Stormi. 
The picture of the egg, at the writing of this column, sits at 44 million likes. That’s over two times the likes Jenner received for her post. If each like were counted as a person, the egg would be the 32nd largest country in the world, edging out Sudan’s population at 43.9 million. 
The creator of the account is currently unknown, but a few prominent internet personalities have claimed to be behind the viral post. Despite the anonymity, the account remains active, replying to comments as the likes continue to pour in. 
While the world record egg has an astounding 6.1 million followers, it is still nowhere close to beating the most followed account. This record is currently held by Selena Gomez, who boasts a massive following of 144 million. 
This bizarre concept of an account centered entirely on an egg and breaking a world record is odd, but with today’s trends, it is not difficult to understand.
