The Pick Two Animals Meme Is The Most Divisive Discourse on Twitter Right Now

There are many arguments raging on Twitter. Some are tearing communities apart. Friends, families, all are bitterly fighting over all manner of things. Yet, the most divisive argument of the week is all about animals. 

Twitter user Dan Nolan shared a meme that has circulated for some time, writing, “I’ve been driven insane by this,” inviting everyone else to go absolutely insane too.
