Name: The Egg
Age: Born on January 4
Appearance: Greater than Kylie Jenner
And how tall is Kylie Jenner? Smaller than the egg.
Hey, that's Pass Notes, not a Zen Koan. We are sorry. About 1.68 m.
That's a big egg! What are we talking about here? Godzilla? Mutant Emu Instagram.
Woah! Instagram now has the ability to breed fallopian tubes? They really delete the part of "intentional misunderstandings" of this format, right? Should I just explain what the egg is?
Yes, please. The Egg is a picture of an egg that has just broken Kylie Jenner's record to become the most popular Instagram feature in history.
And with "Everything in History " you mean . .. Instagram was invented. Eight years or so.
What is so remarkable about this image of an egg? That's it. Nothing. It's just a photo from an egg, the only image ever posted by @world_egg_record, next to the caption: "Let's set a world record and get the most popular post on Instagram."
Am I missing something? Yes. They miss a deliberate hierarchical disorder. The egg was probably successful thanks to the same impulse, the Rage Against the Machine kill in the name for Christmas no. 1
And now they have succeeded? Absolutely. Jenner's post got 18 million likes, but The Egg is now at 26 yards and counts.
And what was Jenner's favorite post? A picture of her newborn daughter's hand gripping her finger. Ha! We purposely undermine the happiest day of her life! Lolz!
And the great thing about Instagram is that there will definitely be no boring imitations. @World_record_eggsmotheer [sic] obviously has not seen an account posting a picture of a chicken ("the mother of the egg") to get more likes than @world_egg_record. It currently only has 17 likes and 5 comments.
I really hate the internet sometimes. But is not that fascinating? The whole thing is a captivating microcosm of all of our online collective behavior, and if we investigate it properly, we'll see for sure that we …
Nope. You are right. I also hate the internet.
Say: "The egg has definitely proven that Instagram likes are not a true reflection of true value."
