We get in a lot of heated arguments around here, usually over pretty stupid stuff. Stupid, but incredibly important stuff. Like, are crawfish considered seafood, or is everyone using the bathroom the way God intended?

Help us settle the biggest questions of our time once and for all by voting below.



Are crawfish seafood?

This one might not be a hot topic in the rest of the world, but here in Louisiana, it’s a serious debate. Some people say yes, crawfish are seafood because they’re crustaceans, and all crustaceans are seafood because reasons. Other people say they’re not seafood because they don’t live in the ocean, which is another word for the sea, so if they’re not ocean food, they’re not seafood, either.

We'll keep eating them either way, but we have to know.



Do you wipe standing up or sitting down?

I never knew this one was debatable, but it’s apparently ripping entire families apart. Some people say standing up to wipe your backside is the absolute right way to go about your business because toilet seats are gross and why would you want to risk touching the side of the bowl, anyway? Other people swear by remaining seated, due to funny words like sphincter and other things like gravity and physics or whatever.

I dunno, man. Science.



How do you pronounce GIF?

You know what a GIF is, right? They’re those little animated pictures people love to share online, but nobody can agree on how the word should be pronounced. The creator of the file format says it’s a soft ‘g’ like in Ginger or Giraffe, but a whole lot of people say that, since it stands for Graphics Interchange Format, it should be a hard ‘g’ like in Get or Gift.

Then there’s Giphy.com, one of the most popular websites where people get their GIFs, which is probably supposed to be pronounced as ‘jiffy’ - you know, so you can get your GIFs in a Jiffy at Giphy.

Great. Now I want a PB&J.



Toilet paper: over or under?

I don't want to influence your vote or anything, but there are two kinds of people in this world: those who think toilet paper should hang over the roll, and those who are wrong about everything and probably need to shut up and go rethink their lives.

There really is only one right answer here. Choose wisely.



Do you refrigerate condiments?

Where I come from, we always refrigerated our condiments, except maybe for peanut butter. But ketchup, mustard, and jelly? We always kept them in what my dad called the icebox because he’s old and doesn’t understand what technology is. However, here in Louisiana, it seems like nobody refrigerates anything, and they look at you funny when you say you do.

And this isn't even going into the great "Do you dip your fries in ketchup, or just pour it all over them like a caveman" debate. Some topics are just too dangerous to touch.
