Let's settle this.

An important question is vexing the good people of the internet: If giraffes wore ties, would they wear them like this...

The question was first posed on Twitter by comedian Jeremy Hammond.

So, which theory is the right one? The world may never know.

Half prefers top, half prefers bottom. It’s a tie. https://t.co/vCeuST5l0w
