The giraffe riddle is the latest social media “inside joke” to hit Facebook, which has seen thousands upon thousands of people forced into changing their profile picture to a giraffe for getting the answer wrong to a riddle.
What exactly is the riddle you mat ask? Take a look:
It’s 3 a.m., the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors! It’s your parents and they are here for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread, and cheese. What is the first thing you open?
The key to the riddle isn’t the list of nibbles and bits you have lying around your apparently ill-equipped kitchen. The key to the riddle is what you were doing before your doorbell rang. You were asleep … and what do people do they when they go from sleeping to being awoken by their dink parents at 3AM? They open their eyes.
Now let’s get back to the really important things on Facebook shall we? I know I’ve been missing out on a lot of Miley Cyrus gossip, adorable kid videos, and hyped up articles about how everything is about to kill us.
