A tweet shows a large bag of eggs being sold at Morrisons for the bargain price of £1.

My local Morrison’s is selling actual sacks of wet eggs. This is the most wretched and cursed item I have ever witnessed

If you've ever desired a comically large plastic bag full of wet, boiled eggs, then it's truly your lucky day.

Twitter user @TrumpetSexy revealed in two genuinely cursed photos that Morrisons, a UK grocer, is selling what appears to be dozens of eggs sitting in an unknown liquid and available at room temperature. Delicious!

The photos were an immediate viral hit and the tweet now has nearly 120,000 likes and has prompted many, many questions.

Like, why does the bag say there are five eggs when there are clearly many more? Is the whole thing really just £1? And also, why?

@TrumpetSexy It says 5 boiled eggs but it contains at least 12 eggs. Are you supposed to guess which 5 are boiled?


Things have gotten weird. Curses upon curses.

this item is widely misunderstood. you're meant to drink the egg water, the eggs are just there for flavor

Your boyfriend takes you out for a picnic. You spend the night watching the stars and its perfect. He opens a bag and says 'Wet egg?' and you reach in. You rummage around and you find a ring. You pull your hand out. 'A million times yes!' you say. The wedding is egg themed.

Someone named Rochelle on the Morrisons social media team has gotten in on the action and has been replying to some of the tweets about the egg sack.

@ComedyCentralUK More than you would think - Rochelle

@TrumpetSexy You see a cursed item but all I see is a bargain🤷‍♀️ #weteggwin - Rochelle

When reached by BuzzFeed News, a Morrisons spokesperson said the eggs are just leftovers bundled together.

"'These boiled eggs are prepared for our salad bar. Sometimes, rather than wasting them, we offer them to customers directly," the spokesperson said.

Mystery solved? Honestly, no, but if you need a lot of wet eggs you know where to go.
