Heads or Tails – a Past Theme

This week's theme/prompt is: 
EDGE – Any Past Theme

I decided to revisit HEADS *or* TAILS from October 7, 2008 – Black *OR* White.

The question that comes to mind is: What color is a zebra?  Is it black with white stripes?  Is it white with black stripes?

I found this very interesting article at How Stuff Works – What Color is a Zebra? and I thought it explained it pretty well.  Looking at the picture of the zebra, though, I could see it being the other way around.

What do you think?  Is the zebra white with black stripes or black with white stripes?

Heads or Tails is a fun weekly meme hosted by Skittles!

  1. Well I think its black with white stripes - otherwise it would have a white tail :-)

  2. i think its white with black stripes because the black stripes taper off at the edges, like the paint brush was lifted at the end of the stroke.

  3. No matter which combination you say, it's's striped. Like, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet....

    a zebra is a zebra and striped.

    You can't change a leopard's spots...

    Where am I going with this? Don't ask other words, I haven't the foggiest if it's white with black or black with white. hehehehe

    Happy H o T day, My Heads or Tails is posted, hope you can come join me today.

  4. The link says black with white stripes. Hmm.. I'm not sure I know which way I thought it was. But I still need my morning coffee. :P

  5. Ummm, so what's the answer? Are you going to make me do my own research???? :-0

  6. I haven't a clue but neither have I decided whether the egg came before the chick or vice versa, so...I'm no help at all.

  7. All I know is that if it had a rash, it would be black & white and red all over!!!

    Whew, I am SO glad we settled that.

  8. White with black stripes! Okay maybe black with white stripes. ;o)

  9. I'm guessing it's white with black stripes -- now I'll go read the article. This is just the kind of question I'm always coming up with! lol

  10. I've actually never thought about it. I bet my Poor Hubby has, though. He thinks stuff like that all the time. For his sake today, for instance, I looked up the possibility that our Maine Coons may be identical twins. (I'm still not sure...)

  11. haha good question, despite what the experts say.. I say he is white with black stripes because of his black hair!
    fun post!

  12. Like is the cup half full or half empty? Great HoT!
