Are there more wheels or doors in the world? A debate to determine whether there are more wheels or doors in the world has taken the internet by storm. No, really.

The discussion has divided social media users into teams, with one side pointing to hotels, apartment buildings and dorms and the other citing suitcases, bicycles and other common items that function with wheels.

According to the website Know Your Meme, which tracks popular internet memes, the debate started raging when Twitter user Ryan Nixon posted a poll last week asking: “Do you think there are more doors or wheels in the world?”

More than 223,000 people voted in the poll, with wheels beating out doors.

The question quickly spread on social media, with celebrities, journalists and other Twitter users defending their positions on #TeamWheels or #TeamDoors.

“there are more wheels than doors. literally not even a debate. goodbye,” tennis player Coco Gauff shared.

The debate also went viral on TikTok. #TeamDoors pointed to skyscrapers, bathroom stalls, dog doors and refrigerator doors adding up around the world.

But #TeamWheels pointed out that while large office buildings have many doors, they also have desk chairs that often have wheels. Motorcycles and bicycles have two wheels and no doors – the list goes on.

“There is no Team Wheels and Team Doors. That is a fundamental misunderstanding of this situation we find ourselves in. There is a Team Wheels, and then there is a Team People Who are Mistaken,” author John Green said on TikTok
