The quarantine's brought a lot of free time to many of us. Some have been using it to spend more quality time with their family, some have picked up new hobbies that they've always wanted to try, some have started working out and some... well, apparently, some people have been taking this time as an opportunity to perfect their skills in making unsettling-looking eggs.
Recently, a Twitter user named Anna Hughes shared a post in which she told everyone about her quarantine mission. "Many people have been using quarantine as a time to perfect their bread or coffee making skills, but I personally have taken this as an opportunity to make increasingly unsettling eggs," Anna wrote in her post. She also added some photos capturing a few of her masterpieces.
Apparently, Anna isn't the only one with a hobby like this. Her post has since received more than 400,000 likes and almost 80,000 thousand comments and retweets of people sharing their own unsettling eggs. Bored Panda invites you to take a look at some of the most successful attempts.
First of all, let's take a look at the fateful eggs that started it all
Many people were quite fascinated by all these unsettling eggs. "These are unironically really good. Food art," someone wrote. "Excellent content," other user commented. Someone even said this: "This is not failing... You're just doing the opposite of the norm and i think that requires tons of patience and focus on detail, for that i respect u hoho."
Some people even suggested techniques to help others make their unsettling-looking eggs: "Suggestion here to up your unsettling egg game! First whisk the eggs, pour them in the pan, and let them cook until solid. Then add one more egg on the sides. Now flip the solid egg part over like an omelette so you have an omelette with a runny inside like a sunny side up egg!"
Some, apparently, weren't having it. "I’m calling the police," one person wrote. "The effects of COVID are worse than we imagined," other user expressed their concerns. "Thanks. I hate it," someone added. "This is very disturbing. You have achieved your aim. I am indeed unsettled. Also, The Increasingly Unsettling Eggs needs to be a Residents-style weirdo band. Put me down for a copy of the debut EP," someone wrote.
