A couple's laundry room debate has spilt over onto the internet, prompting thousands of people to comment on one of the most tedious adulting topics ever discussed: towels.

Photographer and podcast host Abdul Dremali asked for help on Twitter this week, calling for opinions on "what is the correct amount of towels to own".

According to Abudl, his girlfriend Anna wasn't impressed when he suggested it was totally fine for an adult to posses a maximum of 10 towels, news.com.au reports.

"I said 10 and she looked at me like I was crazy," Abdul said.

"We have zero frame of reference on the appropriate amount of towels in a household of two."

But if Abdul thought this innocent question about the contents of his linen cupboard would elicit a response from two, maybe three, of his followers, he had another thing coming.

What followed was a viral flood of responses from people weighing in on possibly the most boring topic in existence.

People contributed to this debate in a major way, with one woman saying there was simply no such thing as too many towels.

"10-15 for two people is appropriate. You could never have too many towels. I believe I have 12 for two people and I wish I had more. I could not stress this enough. YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY TOWELS," one person replied.

Others did not agree.

"You can definitely have too many towels if u live in NYC without a washer/dryer (which is pretty common). Too many towels & u can put off doing laundry so when you finally do it (or do wash/fold) its a overwhelming mountain. (I have too many towels, underwear & socks, lol)," someone posted.

Others just threw out random numbers, in case they stuck.

Adbul's tweet also sparked a huge number of sub threads, as people proposed something, and a string of people splintered off to dissect it further.

New York Magazine reporter Yashar Ali offered his person opinion, claiming the minimum number of towels a couple should own is 50, "preferably more".

That tweet alone sparked more than 10,000 likes and 1,000 retweets.

It also caught the attention of Chrissy Teigan, who told Yashar off for essentially hoarding wash cloths.

She then asked Yashar when his birthday so she could send him a washing machine.

One woman sent through a comprehensive list of how many towels she recommended and what purpose each one would be used for.

But it seemed her response only confused Abdul even more, with him asking her to explain what the difference between "nice hand towels and fancy hand towels".

While other people revelled in how utterly boring and ridiculous this viral moment had truly become.

At the end of the towel saga Abdul and Anna were reportedly gobsmacked by the response and absolutely no closer to figuring out how many towels they should own.

Abdul has since changed his Twitter bio to "worlds biggest Towel Influencer".
