To cut right to the chase, here's the recording, as shared on Twitter by influencer and designer Cloe Feldman.

Whether or not our ear canals or our brains are to blame, it's clear that, with one word, a bot has once again flamed internet users' tribal instincts.

"My wife heard yanny".

Sports writer Ted Berg wrote "there's no way anyone could hear that as Yanny", and "anyone who says they do is lying for shock value". The two younger members of Select All heard "Yanny", while the older two heard "Laurel".

David Monahan said the audio clip "was Yanny when I listened on my computer and Laurel on my phone..."

This takes us back to the social media debates over the blue/gold or white/black dress and the gray or pink shoe.

Remember the dress that people either thought was gold and white or black and blue?
