- A bizarre video depicting an egg getting bigger and bigger after being soaked in various liquids went viral on Twitter on Thursday.
- First, the egg is submerged in a glass of vinegar for a day and comes out significantly larger than a traditional egg.
- Then, the same egg is doused in maple syrup, left to sit for a day, and moved to a glass filled with water and blue dye.
- After yet another day of absorption, the egg emerges blue, bouncy, and much larger than both a regular egg and a vinegar-soaked egg.
- Twitter users have pointed out the pointlessness of the so-called hack and the irony that the three-day process was originally posted by an account called "5-Minute Crafts."
