If you pay attention to what's trending on Twitter, you may have noticed a (particularly) strange topic: "Baby Hitler."

Stranger yet is the source of the trend, none other than a division of the venerable "New York Times".

"New York Times Magazine" tweeted the following question Friday afternoon: “If you could go back and kill Hitler as a baby, would you do it?”

While 30 percent said no, 42 percent said yes – we can only assume these people have never seen any time travel movie ever made because (spoiler alert) chaos always ensues.

Within minutes, the world responded to what is undoubtedly the Twitter-based moral dilemma of our times.

But in the end, it all comes back to guacamole.

So... would you?
