"If the glove don't fit you must acquit"

The question and the answers don't necessarily relate. 
Who said the glove fit in the first place?  I guess you could bring up the fact that cheap gloves might be designed to fit both hands.

I have to wonder if my hands are both the same size as well.  I can put my left shoe on my right foot.  It "fits" but not "like a glove"

It's ah... kind of more to do with which side of the hand your thumb is on.

This is two questions... they only let you answer the second. Also, you could really put it on either hand, assuming it's not like a boxing glove or something... but then how would you invert a boxing glove?

No seriously... this is a MATCH question?  Does someone really care enough how their potential partner would answer this question?  How about something more to the point, like... "do you think you're smart?"

Easiest way to visualize this is to hold your hands up, palms facing you and touch your middle finger tips together. Then imagine having someone pull a glove off of your left hand in a manner such that it slides onto your right hand. The glove would be inside out.

But is there really much of a difference between having the glove inside out and having the palm of the glove on the back of your hand, which is what would happen if you put the left glove on your right hand without turning it inside out?

Depends on the glove, I would think.  Some gloves are made with the pad of the hand in mind, but latex gloves are for either hand, correct?  So if it wouldn't matter which hand went in which glove, reversing it wouldn't make a whit of difference.  Whit whit.

Try that with a ski/snow glove and lemme know how it works out :)

Only if you try wearing it inside out first.

Regardless of inversion, it's still a left-handed glove, that's the name the problem gives it.

There should just really be an "it depends"-esque option, because really, what's the definition of "fitting" anyway?

Both gloves fit on both hands, or neither fits. Simple. You can put a glove on backwards - feels a bit uncomfortable, but works. The correct answer is not among the choices.

^ some gloves you can't put on backwards. the thumb's not in the right place.

Because of the way it's sewn, it's unlikely to fit at all

What the? It depends on the type of glove, for cryin' out loud. And who wants to wear an inside-out glove anyway?

I hope we had some intentional wrong answers here. As for the perplex, obviously the glove can be turned inside out. If you chose to wear it, that's your business.

It fits like an itchy, gross inside out glove on the hand it's supposed to be on, the left.

Fits on the right hand.

Not a great match question. I've marked this as irrelevant. Still, I thought it was fun ^_^
