Too Lazy to Solve the Facebook Giraffe Riddle? Get the Answer Here
OK with being a cheater? Then you’ve come to the right place.
Like an inexplicable rash, my Facebook feed, and I assume everyone else’s, has been riddled with friends and family changing their profile pictures to that of a giraffe. The reason behind it being that they were sucked into a new trend involving the following viral 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?
The instructions that come along with the riddle state that you are to private message the person who shared it with your answer. Get it right, you get to keep that selfie you took at the bar over the weekend when you were three sheets to the wind as your profile pic. Get it wrong, you must change your profile pic to a giraffe for three days. If you don’t change it, you have to try and sign up for Obamacare. #PopCultureJoke
Call me a party-pooper, or what have you, but I generally avoid these types of things because I think they’re stupid. But, if it gives people a few seconds of enjoyment, then so be it. To each their own, I say.
Alright, so let’s get to the answer, that is if you want it.
In case you’ve made it this far and said to yourself, “Nope! I’m not a cheater. I will figure this out on my own, or face the consequences of changing my profile picture to a giraffe,” I have written the answer in white text below. That way you can stop here and still not know the answer.
If cheating doesn’t cause you to lose any sleep at night, simply highlight what appears to be the blank space below this paragraph to reveal the answer. Will you cave into the temptation?
The Answer: From what I’ve seen, two answers are being accepted. “Your eyes” being one, and “the door” being the other. The riddle throws people off by rattling off the various types of food, causing people to shift their focus to that instead of the fact that the riddle takes place at 3:00AM in the morning, when most people are still sleeping.
