Humanity has a lot of important unanswered questions. For example, are we alone in the universe? What comes after death? Is it possible to travel faster than the speed of light? But all these discussions will have to wait because there's one that is much more important: When giraffes go to work, do they put the tie at the top or bottom of their necks?

The question was posted on Twitter by comedian Jeremy Hammond, and the internet is divided once again. Post your answer below and don't forget to vote for your favorites!



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

I see a disturbing lack of giraffes commenting. Let the giraffes decide for themselves!

It probably starts at the top but after a tough day negotiating contracts with the baboons and lions, it likely slips down.

I don't know. Most giraffes I've seen are either unemployed or jailed in a zoo.

As they say: Dress for the job you want, not the one you have.

Where the ties are worn depends on social status: boss giraffes wear them on top, middle management in the middle, simple clerks at the bottom.

I always thought it depended on if you were arriving to work, or leaving.....

Actually, to answer were a giraffe should wear its tie, we first need to know how it wears its dress shirts!

Those of you who say the left picture looks better is obviously looking at it merely from a human's perspective. You know how that's highly inconsiderate towards giraffes? Because, basically, what you're saying is that if they don't look like us shortnecks they'll look ugly and undesirable as the long-necked creatures that they are!

Of course at the bottom! They do not have that long arms to tie it at the top

And who said they tie their ties themselves?

Think about this for a moment. Do humans wear ties at the bottom? or the top of their necks?
