Dog pants debate has the internet divided – again

#DogPants is likely the last great internet debate to waste our time this year. Pick a side: Two legs or four?

2 legs or 4? The question of how a dog would wear pants is likely the last great internet debate of 2015

How would a dog wear pants? The internet is being flooded with many, many different answers to that question right now.

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?

It began with an image drawn by a 19-year-old Belgian man and posted to this Facebook page, according to the Washington Post.

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.

But the 4-legged camp is hanging on doggedly.

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.

One thing's for sure though...
