I was teaching some students about debugging print statements, so thought of doing a Google search for them.

Here is the search:

Viewed a few of the search results. One, from the site, had an interesting discussion about the pros and cons of debugging print statements vs. logging vs. using a debugger:

Is printing to console/stdout a good debugging strategy?

And there are other interesting results of the search.

The title of this post is, of course, a word play on the famous quote:

To be, or not to be

from the play Hamlet by Shakespeare.

And the image at the top is of the actor Edwin Booth playing Hamlet.
