Care to Know Why Many of Your Facebook Friends Have Been Replaced By Giraffes?


If some of your friends have replaced their profile pictures with giraffes, you’re not alone. A recent trend on Facebook asks users to guess the answer to a riddle. Those who get it wrong are required to adopt a giraffe picture as their profile pic for three days. Reportedly started by Youtuber Andrew Stugnell, correct guessers of The Great Giraffe Challenge get to keep their profile pic and have their name added to the comment section on his Facebook page.

Here’s 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?”

Think you know the answer? Send a private message to Andrew Stugnell with your answer. Make sure it’s private so as not to give away the answer to other potential riddle-solvers.


There is some disagreement about the answer to the riddle. The official answer is eyes, but others (including most of us at BeeSeen) would argue that the answer is door. The riddle states that you have already woken up, and opening your eyes is often associated with waking up. (However, having your eyes open does not always mean you’re awake. Cue grande mocha Frappuccino with an espresso shot.)


Carefully worded or not, the riddle is a fun way to engage in a wider Facebook community. And the maker promises for more riddles to come, so keep your eyes peeled for more coordinated animal pictures!
