I'm fascinated by Yo! Egg's "world's first plant-based poached egg."

Like, how do you cook it? I assume it's sold fully formed. Do you still poach it? Is the yolk solid until heated? If not, can it solidify when heated? What is the market for poached eggs?

Coming soon!
The Sunny One
The world's first plant-based fried egg

Okay, the sunny egg is a substance that fries like egg white topped with a liquid yolk pod, so the poached egg must be the same yolk pod encased.

And the poached egg casing must be a different egg white substance, because otherwise, Yo! Egg could just sell artificial raw eggs.

Coming soon!
The Boiled One
Unlike anything you've seen before

I imagine this is the poached egg casing with a yolk truffle inside.

Idea: Plant-based dog meat.

Erinem is an American rapper from Tyler, Texas, but musically influenced by Detroit hip-hop.


Born Erin Emily Wheeler, Erinem gets her artist name from a combination of her first and middle name.


Erinem is often asked if her artist name has any relationship to Eminem. She states that the similarity between her name and Eminem's is a product of coincidence, not design.

She's influenced by Detroit hip-hop, but her name is a coincidence?

She also had the privilege of working with D12's Bizarre.

She worked with D12's Bizarre, but her name is a coincidence.

Her previous EP, Y.B.A.L.A., received rave reviews.

Clearly, nomenclature is not one of her strengths.

Erinem is a member of American Mensa; paradoxically, after failing out of ninth grade, she went on to graduate from The New School, receiving an MFA. [source]

1. Avatar

2. Avengers: Endgame

3. Titanic

4. Avatar: The Way of Water

5. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

6. Avengers: Infinity War

As of this writing, Zoe Saldana features in 4 of the 6 highest-grossing films of all time worldwide.

With Avatar 3-5 and Avengers 5-6 confirmed, it's conceivable that Zoe Saldana will feature in 9 of the 10 highest-grossing films of all time worldwide.

Need an Infinity War re-release to push it above The Force Awakens, though.

In America, Avatar is only the fourth highest-grossing film of all time.

1. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

2. Avengers: Endgame

3. Spider-Man: No Way Home

4. Avatar

5. Top Gun: Maverick

6. Black Panther

That Force Awakens domestic gross is absurd.

Whereas international box office composes 70+% of total gross for James Cameron's films, almost half of The Force Awakens' total gross was Americans.

We were fiending.

In America, The Force Awakens even outgrossed the highest-grossing Chinese film of all time in China [The Battle of Lake Changjin – $913 million USD]. And that's with one-fourth the population!

Fixes on fixes.
