By now, you’ve heard about the egg, which outshone a photo of Kylie Jenner’s daughter, Stormi, on Sunday as the most-liked post on Instagram.
But who did the egg? Whose dumb but ultimately successful suggestion was this?
Here’s what we know so far 😛 TAGEND
1. The egg report holder goes by “Henrietta.”
Henrietta is, according to a report from BuzzFeed News, a “chicken from the British countryside.”
2. The history incumbent, nonetheless, claims to live in London.
“I’m an individual living in London, ” the history owner told The Independentearlier this week . They too revealed that they were have 400 adherents on their personal Instagram account.
Sources close to Mashable have also independently confirmed that the egg is a man who lives in the London area.
3. The egg’s name is Eugene, allegedly.
In some interviews, the detail owner goes by the name Eugene, bypassing the whole “Henrietta” schtick entirely.
4. The person who did the egg was participating in dry January at the time.
Nothing spawns ability like suddenly not drinking.
5. Love of the egg are called the “Egg Gang.”
6. The egg accounting follows 928 accountings and two hashtags.
The hashtags are #WSHH — WorldStarHipHop — and #FatBoySSE, who is a rapper from New Jersey.
7. Supreme Patty is a suspect.
So far, the only public figure to have implied responsibility for the egg is Supreme Patty, an Instagram star who smokes hot sauce and is known for squeezing lemon juice into his own gazes. While Patty didn’t claim he did the egg outright, one of his friends did “ve said” in a TMZ interview.( This is, of course, to be taken with a lemon-sized grain of salt .)
For what it’s worth, we do not envisage Supreme Patty did the egg. It’s more likely that he’s simply capitalizing on the big-hearted meme of the moment. He did get an egg tattoo, though, so kudos on committing to the bit. And the egg does follow him on Instagram.
We’ve contacted out to Supreme Patty and will revise this post if we discover back.
8. Okay, the egg history says it’s not Supreme Patty.
In an Instagram story posted on Tuesday, @world_record_egg claimed the TMZ story was bogus. “We’re still anonymous. Fake news, ” they wrote.
So we guess it’s not Supreme Patty. Stay tuned for more egg updates.
