Have the Giraffe profile pictures on Facebook bugging you?


If you have been on Facebook lately, you may be wondering why everyone on Facebook is so suddenly changing their display pictures to a giraffe. Don’t worry, neither are the giraffes endangered nor is there a circus in town.

This popping up of giraffe photos on Facebook are nothing but a byproduct of a meme that has been spreading like a virus on the social network recently.

This meme invites people to share a riddle with their friends and then they are to send the answer as a private message. Any user who is unable to answer or sends the wrong answer has to put a giraffe’s pic as his or her profile pic. But why only a giraffe, no one knows.

The Riddle goes like this:

“At 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”?

According to most users, there should be two acceptable answers and there has been a long going debate over this. Many users have already been irritated by this riddle that has been plaguing Facebook and its users, whereas some are making jokes.

One user commented that if anyone shows up at his house at 3 am, then they better go to a hotel as he will not be answering the door.

Another user said that he had got the answer right but he was fascinated with the giraffe’s pic, so anyway he put it as his profile picture.

The two debatable answers are the door and the eyes.
