It's a loaded question akin to whether pineapple belongs on pizza: Do you hear Yanny or Laurel? In case you somehow missed it, a clip of a computer-generated voice saying either Yanny or Laurel went viral earlier this week, and the Internet has been freaking out since. Thanks to The New York Times, we now know that the robotic voice in the viral clip is actually saying Laurel — but does it even matter anymore? Yanny vs. Laurel has consumed our lives and our timelines, so we might as well laugh about it. Twitter has delivered some very good tweets about whether the robot is saying Yanny or Laurel, and we're all grateful.
Even though the Times tracked down the clip's creator and confirmed that it's a recording of "laurel" from a vocabulary website, the debate rages on. People are still insisting it's Yanny, which is proof that we're probably just arguing about this because we're bored. The original tweet from YouTuber Cloe Feldman has more than 20 million views and 80,000 retweets, and you've probably argued with at least one person in your life about this. Whether you stan for Laurel or Yanny, you'll get a laugh out of these tweets about the situation.
