Why are there so many giraffes on my Facebook feed?

Winston Sih | posted Tuesday, Oct 29th, 2013

Facebook users have noticed that giraffes are quickly taking over the profile of friends and family.

The latest trend to take over social media is called ‘The Great Giraffe Challenge,’ and was created by an Australian travel blogger Andrew Strugnell, who often challenges his YouTube subscribes with these tasks.

The premise is simple: Find it posted on a friend’s Facebook feed, and if you get it wrong, repost the riddle on your own wall and update your profile photo to that of a giraffe.

The original post was published on Oct. 26, and has since taken off with thousands of Facebook users worldwide.

Now it’s your turn–take the challenge, and let us know if you figure it out in the comments below. And remember, if you get it wrong, change your profile photo and repost the riddle!

For a detailed description of how the game works, watch the video below.

The Great Giraffe Challenge (Repost to your Facebook wall):

I’ve changed my profile to a giraffe. I tried to answer a riddle and got it wrong. Try the great giraffe challenge!

The deal is I give you a riddle. You get it right you get to keep your profile pic. You get it wrong and you change your profile pic to a Giraffe for the next 3 days. MESSAGE ME ONLY SO YOU DONT GIVE OUT THE ANSWER.

Here is 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?

Remember… message me only. If you get it right I’ll post your name here. If you get it wrong change your profile pic.
