This Debate About if a Dog Wore Pants Couldn't Be Dumber

The general consensus is it's the dog on the right. But let's back up the truck.

Last night, Maxim's deputy editor Jared Keller tweeted this photo that asks how a dog would wear pants, if dogs wore pants. It's pretty simple.

So, yes, there is another side in this debate. Hence all the raging shares and comments across social media. What's even crazier is this is not the first time this debate has popped up -- Buzzfeed wrote about it in November, based on a Yik Yak post. And the trend spiked in November 2015, as of this article's publishing. Though that's sure to change.

But none of these previous posts ever settled the debate, or another burning question: why the hell do we care so much about dogs wearing pants?
