We’re only a couple of weeks into 2019 and already the year is set to go down in meme history thanks to Kylie Jenner‘s Instagram clout being usurped by an egg.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock of late, you’ll be aware that last week an unlikely competitor — a picture of an egg — bagged the accolade of most-liked picture on Instagram, knocking Jenner’s baby arrival announcement off top spot.

The internet, unsurprisingly, couldn’t resist turning our new oval overlord into a meme.

On hitting 25 million likes, the egg thanked its fans for their support, adding, “What a time to be alive.” But that was just the start. Now at 44 million likes and counting, the egg’s success has prompted everyone to bask in the sea of ridiculousness we call life online in 2019 — check out some of the best egg-inspired reactions below.
