“Laurel” or “Yanny”? The Audio Clip That’s Puzzling Us All

“Laurel” or “Yanny”? The Audio Clip That’s Puzzling Us All

It’s been three years since the dress that stumped the internet. 

When the mother of a bride sent her daughter this photo, causing a disagreement over its color that would spread so widely, its hashtag would amass over 10 million mentions within the post’s first week.

This debate garnered viral attention after a friend of the bride’s posted the image on Tumblr and no one on the internet could agree on what they saw. 

Earlier today, a new kind of controversy sparked across Twitter when people were asked to pick which of these words they hear in this clip:

It’s basically the audio equivalent of the dress debacle all over again.

Most of us can only hear one of the words (names?)

#TeamLaurel all the way.

Oh, internet, where will we go from here.

This Woman Asked Her Boyfriend For A Paper Clip And Got A Lesson On Gender

Look, people are different, and there’s no need to make generalizations based on gender. But sometimes it’s fun to.

Or this one, about how men are physically and psychically unprepared to pick out a simple pair of leggings:

But this tweet from Twitter user @CiaraTobin may be the simplest iteration of the genre ever. She shared text messages with her boyfriend Riley, in which she asks for a paper clip and ends up discovering more than she wants to know about his organizational habits:

I’m gonna be honest, this isn’t that far off from how I store my office supplies, but I still find Tobin’s loving exasperation with her man very funny.

And everyone else finds it extremely relatable, because they’ve lived it (both men and women):

At least one other person had a similar story saved and ready to go:

Wherever you are on the gender spectrum, you know if this is you.

Now, where are my paper clips?
