Giraffes invade Facebook display photos-A A +A
Wednesday, October 30, 2013
MOST of Facebook users were probably curious about why some of their friends changed their profile photos to giraffes. It is due to the “Giraffe riddle," which some people find interesting, others think annoying.
The riddle goes something 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?"
The game said that if the answer is right, the Facebook user will be spared from the punishment. If the answer is wrong, then the Facebook user must replace his or her profile picture with a giraffe for three days or even a week, depending on who sent the riddle to the user.
Rio Valencia, a Facebook user who supposedly answered correctly said, “Ang saya kasi you get to interact with your Facebook friend. You also get to measure their IQs (intelligence quotient).”
“Nakakainis sobra. Kasi 'door' ‘yung sagot ko tapos 'eyes' daw ang tamang sagot tapos nababalitaan ko tama naman ‘yung sagot ko,” said Kaye Costales, a Facebook user who changed her profile picture to giraffe for one day.
“Sagot ko 'door.' Pero okay lang naman kahit hindi ko nakuha ‘yung tamang sagot. Hindi pa din ako magpapalit ng profile picture kahit mali ako,” said Jerico Valenzuela, another Facebook user who answered the riddle.
The riddle may be simple for others but for some it may be not. It just needs a little “common sense” and imagination.
Some who claimed that they got the riddle right answered “eyes” while others said that the right answer is the “door." Both of which are subject to arguments using logic or maybe, it's just a plain trick someone invented in time for the Halloween. (Sunnex)
