Curious as to why all of your friends Facebook profiles are pictures of giraffes? It seems as though there is a new game, that I myself have fallen victim to, that has you answer a riddle correctly or change your profile picture to a giraffe for three days. Yes, my profile picture is currently a giraffe.

Here is the post that many of you have seen:

“I had to change my profile to a giraffe. I tried to answer a riddle and got it wrong . Try the great giraffe challenge! The deal is I give you a riddle. You get it right you get to keep your profile pic. You get it wrong and you change your profile pic to a Giraffe for the next 3 days. MESSAGE ME ONLY SO YOU DONT GIVE OUT THE ANSWER. Here is the riddle: 3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors, It’s your parents and they are there for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open? Remember… message me only. If you get it right I’ll post your name here. If you get it wrong change your profile pic.”

Unlike those posts that read “If you do not share this something bad will happen to you in so many hours”, the giraffe riddle is completely harmless. Simple really…get the answer correct or be a giraffe. I won’t give away the answer in case any of you would like to play along. For those of you that choose to play… Good luck!

    I think the people saying what the “correct” answer is should post a giraffe themselves. Because as far as I’m concerned, the correct answer is, “My LAPTOP!” lol! :)

  • joseph

    • Kermit

        Stupid riddle. Lots of us work nights or are up late anyway – my eyes are always already open at 3 am and millions of people are the same. Whoever made this up wasn’t thinking at all.

        • RS

    • Elizabeth Anderson

    • Kay

      The answer is your eyes.

  • Cody Drevenik

    your eyes

  • Larry Bruce

    I have already opened the door, dummy! How else would I know it is my parents? I think I would go open the refrigerator door and start getting things out.

  • jeff jacobs

    However, as in the case of parasomnias, this may not always be the case. In these abnormal sleep behaviors, the person remains asleep, or unconscious, but is able to sleepwalk or perform other actions. THEY MAY EVEN HAVE THEIR EYES OPEN. so, if their eyes are already open, the correct answer is door. don’t always assume!!

    • samuel

      no, my bedrooms door!

  • bonnie lane

    Eyes

    • DNH

      I heard it’s eyes, but that’s a BS answer for all of us who work nights. Door should be the correct answer. Whoever came up with this must be a dunce!

  • Leonard

    Your eyes. While the food items distract you, you most likely would open your eyes first upon waking and before opening the door.

  • BCashonB

    If you answered “The Door”. You’re correct. The riddle asks “What is the first THING you open?” ‘Thing’ = Singular Context. If anyone tells you that the answer is “Your Eyes”, you may call BS. “Eyes” are Plural or thingS. The Door is the first THING you open. Unless you were to yawn while walking to the door. In which case, the answer would be “Your Mouth”. (Within the context of the riddle’s timeline.)

  • Loretta

    Its door, ur eyes were already open and the riddle said u awaken, the key word is “is” not “was” it asked “what is” not “what was the first thing u opened” grammar error messed up this riddle :/

    • Lin Min Htoo

      Ok, why not get your parents to visit you at 3 am? Then record a video of your bedroom. Which one do you open first? Your bloody eyes!

      • chris

        Wow. I am surprised you made it far enough to post a comment without the ability to read. Loretta and BcashonB both make very valid points. When the question is asked what do you open first your eyes are already open. The riddle did not ask what was that first that you opened. It asked what is the first thing you open after waking up and hearing the knock at the door. The comment about the singular thing also helps to support this conclusion.

  • Jacob Skillman

    The answer is “the door” as you wouldn’t be able to identify your parents without opening your eyes. Eyes are the answer if you try and over think it, and choosing one of the food/beverage items is supposedly the sign of a simple thinker.

  • Carol Scott

    The door.

  • destiny

    the door

  • keirra mercury

    THE WINE!

  • Melanie

    Open the WINE first!! If my parents came to my house at 3 AM, I would need a buzz.

  • Andrew

    Eyes. Just because your awake, it doesn’t mean that your eyes are actually open. There have been plenty of times when I would be awake/conscious but not have my eyes open

  • Kyle

    Y’all are wrong. Yes you would in fact open your eyes first. But it says in the riddle “you wake up” so your eyes are already open at the time. Also in the riddle it states the question “what Is the first thing you open?” this is where common sense is out of the question. If you think about it. Most people have 2 eyes. But in the riddle it says “first THING” thing is plural. Only one. That being said, eyes is not the correct answer. The correct answer is in fact door. Most people tend not to think about it. I make valid points here. Be sure to save those points and point out the obvious to your friends who think you are wrong. Their answer back fires and they look like the fool and you know the real answer.
