Would Giraffes Wear Ties At The Top Or Bottom Of Their Necks?

Let's settle this.

Posted on November 30, 2016, at 1:15 p.m. ET

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

...or like this?

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

And others think wearing it at the bottom just makes more sense:

blatantly at the bottom. who wears their tie directly under their chin? smh

Bottom looks cooler

clearly at the bottom ffs - it's a tie, ain't no damn choker

And some think it's a bit of both — perhaps the bottom of the neck is for more of a casual Friday vibe:

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

Half prefers top, half prefers bottom. It’s a tie.
