The Giraffe riddle is taking the internet by storm as the seemingly simple challenge casted spells upon Facebook universe, prompting majority of its most active users to change their profile pictures into adorable portraits of the long-legged, overstretched neck mammals.
The riddle goes like this:
"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?"
According to the users who actually participated in the online challenge, failure to give the correct answer to the riddle must have to change their profile picture into giraffes.
While the riddle continues to become a worldwide sensation, online debates are also increasing exponentially in an attempt to find the real answer of the tricky question
Correct Answer? Please!
Though the most acceptable answer in the riddle is the word 'door,' a recent article on the Chicago tribune said there is another possible answer to it. The author of the riddle also accepted the answer 'eyes.'
"Also acceptable is "your eyes." Makes sense at 3 a.m. People are having this little mini fight on Facebook over the correct answer. Many are saying you have to open your eyes first before you try to answer the door. And while that makes perfect sense, the way the riddle is worded it seems to indicate that you are already awake so your eyes would already be open," stated by the Chicago Tribune.
Funniest Comment Ever
The Chicago Tribune tried to find out what's on the mind of their followers on Facebook about the craze, and apparently, they've got a bunch of nice answers - including this:
"Truth be told though, if you were smart and looked to see who it was first, upon realizing it was your parents you'd probably open the wine first then then door."
Giraffe sigtings are now starting to grow by numbers on Twitter, which makes everybody think that this craze won't stop sooner. Here are some of the most hilarious pics that got 'giraffed' on the micro-blogging site.
