A video uploaded to ‘Are You Being Served’ shows a trio of road workers stop from what they are doing to help an elderly woman cross the currently under construction road in Żurrieq. 

The woman could be seen asking whether she could cross the road, but one of the workers goes the extra step to take her hand and help her across the road.

Well done to these generous workers for their act of kindness!

Instead, an empty white photo with a small round shadow in its stead has been uploaded. The photo has already amassed upwards of 270,000 likes, with comments inquiring into what happened to the world famous egg.

The egg had overtaken a post from Kylie Jenner to become the most liked post ever on Instagram. The photo amassed a record of 18 million likes before its purpose was unveiled – a publicity campaign for Mental health America. 

The egg held on to its status for more than a year until Argentina won the 2022 World Cup last year. The status of most liked post was then replaced by Lionel Messi holding the iconic trophy. 

The caption of the new egg-less image is: ‘Where’s the egg gone?’ People absolutely lost it in the comments section. ‘GIVE HIM BACK!!!!!’ one demanded. Another simply said ‘bro, give it back.’

Another outright blamed Messi for the tragedy, saying: ‘Look what Messi has done to our beloved egg.’ It remains to be seen what happens in this saga. We’re really egg-cited to see it unfold.

French bulldogs overtake labradors as most popular dogs in US

French bulldogs overtake labradors as most popular dogs in US
Mar 21 2023 Share

For the very first time in 31 years, the United States of America found a new favourite dog breed as the American Kennel Club released its 2022 registration statistics. 

It found that after being the most popular dog breed for three decades, the Labrador Retriever was outranked by the French Bulldog.

Over the last ten years, the French Bulldog spiked in popularity, being the 14th most popular in 2012 and then the 2nd most popular in 2021. Registrations of these dogs also increased by over 1,000% between 2012 and 2022.

The statistics were based on about 716,500 voluntary registrations from dog owners. The Labradors still rank in second place, followed by Golden Retrievers, German Shepherd Dogs and Poodles.

Taking a look at the European context, some studies suggest that the German Shepherd is the most popular dog breed, followed by the aforementioned Retriever, the Jack Russell Terrier and, once again, the French Bulldog.

Some studies however suggest that the bulldog became the most popular dog in the entire world. Despite having quite an abusive origin story, the breed is now mainly reserved as a family pet.
