It’s not as simple a question as you think. The debate on social media is fierce. And so it should be - it's Flippant Friday!

A very serious, very heated debate is taking place on social media right now.

Where is a giraffe supposed to wear its tie?

Lol! Humans are so crazy!

Where is a giraffe supposed to wear its tie or bowtie? Up underneath the chin? Or down at the base of the neck? I have a very firm view!

Refilwe Moloto, presenter - CapeTalk

What do you think?

At the top, or bottom?

In the interest of world peace, let’s settle this debate once and for all.

Cast your vote below:

Some carefully considered, learned opinions:

It depends. Is it wearing one of those double, triple collar BEE shirts, or just a normal collared shirt? Where are the giraffe’s shoulders? A giraffe should wear it at the base of the neck, not up by the chin! You don’t do that!

Listen to Moloto's analysis of this deeply pressing issue below.
