Inquiring (and hungry) minds want to know.

You might already be aware of McDonald's announcement today that the fast food restaurant will begin testing all-day breakfast in a sunny little town called San Diego.

Beginning in April, diners in the Southern California city will be able to satisfy their McGriddle fix round the clock, according to a statement.

Historically, the two most popular McDonald's menu items are its French fries and "various McMuffin permutations," the statement added.

Given that most of us have been praying for this painfully obvious move since the beginning of time, it is more than enough reason to rejoice.

If (or, let's be real here, when) you visit McDonald's for a pair of its most popular breakfast menu item, will you call them Egg McMuffins, or Eggs McMuffin? (Note which noun is pluralized.)

The simple question ignited a debate among the BuzzFeed News team that escalated rather quickly.

PLEASE HELP THE @BuzzFeedNews TEAM: Is it “Eggs McMuffin” or “Egg McMuffins”

@Lahlahlindsey @BuzzFeedNews wtf egg mcmuffins the entire packaged noun is an "egg mcmuffin" not "egg" and "mcmuffin" cmon now

Some considered the elevated level of fanciness in calling them Eggs McMuffin.

@davidmackau @flashboy @rachelzarrell @BuzzFeedNews Eggs McMuffin sounds fancy, like Eggs Benedict

Others resorted to referring to the egg sandwiches in another (pseudo?) language altogether.

And then there was this.

Winner! –> RT @Bp_Hart: “@AustinHunt: What's the plural form of "Egg McMuffin"” McMuffi
