Over the past few days there has been a viral riddle circulating the internet called “the Great Giraffe Challenge”. The Facebook Giraffe Riddle has been an internet phenomenon, leading some to think the riddle may be linked to a virus by hackers who want to steal Facebook accounts. The riddle goes like this:
“3:00am, 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?”
Those who can’t solve it are asked to change their profile pictures to an image of a giraffe and keep it that way for three days.
Feel free to try and answer the riddle and understand that it’s not really a hoax and it’s safe to change your profile picture to a giraffe. Now when you see all of your friends facebook profile pictures changed to giraffes you know why.
