I have a very serious question to ask you:  Is this a Chihuahua or a Muffin?

That is the question that has EVERYONE on the internet talking.  And the first young woman to ask the question, Karen Zack (https://twitter.com/teenybiscuit) was the one who began the conversation.  Now everyone from the United Kingdom to China is asking, “Is this [insert pet] or [food]?”  This meme is going so viral mainly because its cute, hilarious, and confusing, all at the same time.

This is the photo that started it all.  Karen asked her twitter followers:  Chihuahua or Muffin?  And the World responded.

19) Pomeranian or Pancake?

Ms. Sunakawa wanted in on the conversation, so she cleverly memed, “Pomeranian or Pancake?”  Just let that sink in.

18) Find The White Dog.

This may have been some inspiration for Ms. Zack.  This photo went viral a few years back when a dog’s owner made look-a-like cupcakes of her furry friend.

17) Puppy or Bagel?

Egged on by the Chihuahua’s massive success, Ms. Zack continued her exploration of dogs and baked goods.  She soon moved away from baked goods…

16) Dog or Mop?

Moving away from high carbohydrates, Ms. Zack pursued a brief study in domestic utensils and Komondors (the dogs breed).

15) Shiba or Marshmallow?

Its a valid question.  These adorable Shibas are obviously posing as marshmallows.  Which do we eat?

14) Shrew or Kiwi?

Changing up the “dog or food” game altogether, this is a little Shrew… or is it?  Mind. Blown.

13) Labradoodle or Fried Chicken?

Both are amazing.  But if you are still scratching your head… one is a mixed breed without dandruff, and the other is just finger licking good.

12) Afgand Hound or Saruman?

Another good question.  However, I am pretty sure that the hound is much nicer than Saruman.

11) Corgi Butt or Bread?

We really didn’t want to mess with a good thing, so here are more images of dogs that look like bread, inspired by Ms. Zack.

10) Dalmatian or Ice Cream?

Vavete wanted to join the twitter conversation, so she chimed in with these dalmatians.  Or is it ice cream?  You may never know.

9) Teddy or Puppy?

Equally adorable, these pups may easily pass for their stuffed counterparts.

8) Pug or Bread?

Fair enough Inga, we see the resemblance, and wanted to add one more:

7) Pug AND Bread.

We think this one may be photoshopped, but we are not going to cut into it and find out.

6) Baby Ducks or Plantains?

As soon as bananas go bad its so easy to mistake them for small ducks.

5) Puppy or Croissant?

This array of flakey pastries and puppies has us throughly convinced that dogs and bread are related.

4) Sharpei or Towel?

3) PugTail or Cinnamon Roll?

Just bite into it and you can tell the difference almost immediately.

2) Kitten or Ice Cream?

When the kittens close their eyes, they look dangerously like carmel.  Yummo.

1) Sloth or Pain Au Chocolat?
