Why All of Your Facebook Friends Have Suddenly Turned Into Giraffes

by Jenny Erikson

Have all of your Facebook friends suddenly turned into giraffes? Are they endangered now? Did a celebrity adopt one as a pet and now it’s the vogue thing to pay tribute to safari animals in your avatar? Are you confused?

Have no fear -- I have figured out why giraffes have taken over Facebook. It’s apparently a game in which users post a riddle to their wall and ask their friends to answer it via private message. If they answer wrong, then they have to change their profile picture to a giraffe.

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?

There are apparently two acceptable answers -- your eyes or the door. I said wine, and totally stand by it, because if my parents were knocking on my door at 3 am, I probably would open the wine before I opened my eyes or the door.

The giraffes have nothing to do with the riddle, but they’re pretty darn funny animals, so why not?

Have you changed your profile pic to a giraffe?

Before the arguement about two answers came out and EYES was the 'correct' answer, I said door, so yes, I had to change my picture...lol

Nope, door is wrong, that's what I said too. The answer is your eyes.

 I didn't even try to answer it cause I knew I had no idea what the answer was.

Apparently there's some dispute here because the article says eyes or door
