Above their shoulders like humans. If Angelina Jolie wore a tie, she wouldn't wear it just below her chin.

Shouldn't we test this out of giraffes before we start speculating? This is bunk science.

scottydoesntknow: It has only one neck, so the question is moo.

A better question is would a monkey wear pants with a tail hole (more comfortable, but requires full removal of tail to go to the bathroom*), or a little extra room in the back for the tail to stick out and make taking off/putting on easier?

Maybe a tail hole would be a fancier type of pant. One they could wear for formal occasions.


They could have a tail hole, but with buttons or a zipper above it. Or snaps, I think snaps would work best.

I beg to differ

I think the documentary Jurassic Park supersedes The Far Side.


Nothing supersedes The Far Side.

Chuck Wagon: An important question is completely overlooked here. How would a brachiosaurus put on the tie? I don't believe that it's feet would even be able to get near it's collarbone. They just don't seem long enough or able to bend in the right way. I would imagine though that it would be to use it's long neck and bing it's head near it's front feet. So it seems to me that the only way a brachiosaurus could put a tie on itself would be at the top of the neck and and not the bottom.


There's probably a tool for that...

Ponies wear pants like this:

so...neither?


That only works for cartoon ponies because they don't have genitals. If quadrapeds needed to wear pants, they would need the pants to cover their genetalia, leaving you with the two options of hind legs only, or all 4 legs in pants.

A paleontologist, a professional stylist, an artist and the dinosaur designer for Jim Henson's 'Dinosaurs' sitcom were all willing to waste their time with this question

Ok, that's a fair statement for the first two, but the last couple (definitely the last) weren't really wasting their time if part of their job is figuring out how a dinosaur would wear human clothing.

/The task might be silly, but silly isn't inherently a waste.
