Dog pants debate has the internet divided – again
2 legs or 4? The question of how a dog would wear pants is likely the last great internet debate of 2015
One of the year's biggest memes has squeaked in just under the wire.
Joining "left shark," "the dress" and Drake's dancing is one of the most divisive questions on the internet today: If dogs wore pants, what sort of pants would they wear? And how?
Seems simple enough right?
The question has left the online world bitterly divided, as Twitter users share their surprisingly impassioned responses with the hashtag #dogpants.
The 2-legged camp seems to be the majority.
The dog wears his pants on the back legs.—@austin_hootlen
I did vote that dog pants are silly, but I'd vote two over four legs. <a href="https://t.co/mcsDaL0rEv">https://t.co/mcsDaL0rEv</a>—@VanessaJunkin
I have to weigh in on the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/dogpants?src=hash">#dogpants</a> debate. Clearly, it should just cover hind legs, otherwise it's a backless dress <a href="https://t.co/3m6nRs1aRR">pic.twitter.com/3m6nRs1aRR</a>—@jeremykharris

But the 4-legged camp is hanging on doggedly.
look. the four leg dog pants might look silly, but they make more sense because all the dog's legs are covered and so is the belly—@vondellswain
NO OKAY the dog would maybe wear his pants like the first one because PANTS GO ON LEGS AND DOGS HAVE FOUR LEGS <a href="https://t.co/KpvwPStTX4">https://t.co/KpvwPStTX4</a>—@garlicjuice
How many legs does a dog have? Four. Do you only wear your pants on half your legs? No. Option 1 is correct. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/logic?src=hash">#logic</a> <a href="https://t.co/BnBj25yVzB">pic.twitter.com/BnBj25yVzB</a>—@TelegramJames
Some say a precedent has already been set.

While others have drawn their own solutions.

And, naturally, a few have drawn comparisons to 2015's other great wardrobe debate.
The real question is: Are the dog's pants blue or gold?—@bschorr
One thing's for sure though...
If a dog wears pants he would have a ruff time putting them on.—@footbase
