One of the internet's favorite hobbies of the last few years is imagining how animals (with non-human bodies and anatomies) would deal with human tools and objects, namely stuff like "How would a dog wear pants?" or "How would a giraffe wear a tie?" You've probably seen at least one of these, and probably also had an argument with someone online over which one was the more sensible option:

how dogs wear pants

how dolphins smoke cigarettes

And while these examples are fun to think about and debate over (they're the EXACT RIGHT MIX of inconsequential but thought-provoking), it's hard to come up with a meaningful answer - dogs COULD wear pants in either way and it would have the same effect (an uncomfortable dog), same with giraffes wearing ties. As for dolphins smoking a cigarette - it probbbbbably wouldn't enjoy either method too much. Also, being in water all the time means it would be REAL hard to keep it lit.

And now there's another entry to this burgeoning category of internet arguments - HOW WOULD A SNAKE HOLD A KNIFE?

We were starting to get into it a bit here at work (I was firmly on pro-tail side) and it looked like this would be another endless pointless debate over something pretty meaningless that would never actually end. But, as it turns out, it's a different story altogether. See, @TonyMacAttack stepped in and asked her brother (AN ACTUAL SNAKE BREEDER) to weigh in - and he delivered:

So remember - keep your knives away from ball pythons. Just in case...
