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!
