In today’s “that’s enough internet for me” news, a photograph of a plain chicken egg uploaded by @world_record_egg has claimed the coveted trophy previously held by Kylie Jenner.

Jenner’s post, which chronicles the birth of her baby with Travis Scott, was liked more than 18-million times.

The snap of the egg, uploaded 10 days ago, now holds more than 24.7-million likes.

“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,” reads the egg’s caption. And it’s totally right.

It’s not clear who the record egg is, but 2.5-million people are awaiting its hatching from a single-post account, into an influencer chicken.

While we’re measuring influencing numbers though, it’s clear that Jenner remains a force on the social network boasting over 123-million followers.

Even so, we’re not sure how she’s dealing with her usurpation by an egg. Or maybe we do…
