VIRAL - Why have Giraffes invaded Facebook Profile Photos?

VIRAL - Why have Giraffes invaded Facebook Profile Photos? - I'm sure you would have noticed that many of your friends have changed their Facebook profile photos to long necked Giraffe photos and wondered why? This is because they failed to answer a tough riddle correctly. Known as The Great Giraffe Challenge promoted by New Zealander Youtuber Andrew Strugnell, this riddle has gained huge popularity among Facebook users worldwide.

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?"

I was kinda surprised to read that parents would visit at 3.00am for breakfast instead of supper. Honestly, most decent folks would be sleeping at 3.00am and if my parents do ring at that time, I doubt I'll hear my doorbell at all as I would be soundly sleeping.

But anyhow, the misleading part of the riddle is the fact that the list of choices makes it easy to just pick one of the food/drink. But as tricky as most riddles, the answers are definitely not listed in the question but requires further brainstorming.

Most people would answer the wine, but seriously, who drinks wine for breakfast? OMG.

Anyhow, I got the answers to the riddle correctly so I'm glad I got to keep my Facebook profile photo :) After all, I would not keep my parents outside my home without opening the door.

I wish to counter-argue that the answer "your eyes" is invalid as your eyes would have been already opened to have realized your parents were the ones ringing the doorbell. Furthermore, the riddle states "you wake up" so who wakes up without opening their eyes??? So God knows what kinda answer is that!? Not a very smart riddle I would say...

With more than 84,000 likes on their Facebook page, I would say there are many people out there who are easily amused or entertained :X


Riddle Answers: "The door" and "your eyes." After all, it's 3 a.m. in the riddle.
