Transalation: How to take over Facebook and get away with it!

Oh yes, he did….all over Facebook!

It is the famous Giraffe Riddle. Have you seen this? Posted this? Answered this?

This is what happens.

If you read this riddle on a “friend’s” Facebook status, and guess the answer by private message, getting it right, all is good. Your profile photo remains untouched and aren’t you a smart little non-giraffe person. BUT if you get it wrong. You are a Giraffe and have to change your pic and post this status.

I answered a riddle and got it incorrect. 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 picture….”

And the answer? Let’s say it is………debatable.

Isn’t everything? (looking at you congress)

I am *not* giving the answer here, but I will direct you to a recent article called, The Great Giraffe Riddle Debate. Meaning the majority of incorrect, giraffe glorified profile users are right. But does that mean the ones that didn’t change their profile photos to a Giraffe should change theirs? Or are they both right? And how can that be?

The riddle’s answers are giving birth to riddles. It is Giraffe anarchy!

Most of the Facebook users are sick and tired of Giraffes. If they never laid their eyes on another giraffe….they would be so happy.

But me, I don’t mind. Maybe, I got the riddle wrong (or right?). Hey, I played by the rules. I changed my profile photo.

No one made me. I just happened to have photos of a baby giraffe I adore. I call him Baby G.

I don’t know his real name, but I met him at the Zoo. I notice him lean his tall, long, bobbly head to the ground for some grass. Totally doable if you are a baby giraffe, and you spread your legs just a bit. So out they go, and down he nibbles. But when he tries to get up? Oh, whoops, not so easy for Baby G.

He snaps his legs back together in a hop, slap kind of way. Making quite a show of it to the greatly amused crowd. I laughed. On the inside. On the outside. Holding my camera just so. I did not want to miss this. My favorite part is when he looks around to see if the bigger giraffes have noticed his folly.

Nope! Okay, then…off he goes to figure out a new riddle for Facebook.

  2. Angelia, I’m not on FB, so I was not aware of this but it sounds like FUN!!!

    You photographs of the giraffe are just STUNNING! WOW!

    I adore giraffe’s, not only because of their beautiful long neck, legs and markings. But they have the SWEETEST face!

    Hope you’re having a FAB week, my friend!

  3. I have not changed my profile picture today. I did that yesterday. I answered incorrectly. Or maybe I wasn’t incorrect. Nonetheless, I rather like my giraffe picture, so I’m going to keep it for awhile. We both have long necks and not a lot of hair on our heads. Works for me!

  4. My 12 year old loves that Fox song too. I was a giraffe for 3 days myself, lol. I thought the debate about the ‘correctness’ of the riddle answer was WAY sillier than the riddle itself. It’s all in fun anyway! I guessed what most people guessed incorrectly.
