Why giraffes are taking over Facebook

Oct. 29, 2013 at 7:16 AM ET

Does it feel like your Facebook friends have recently formed an unhealthy obsession with giraffes? They haven't been hitting the zoo: They probably just answered a new viral riddle wrong.

The new trend involves a user posting the riddle to their Facebook page, requesting that friends guess the answer via private message. Users who guess correctly can keep his or her current profile photo. An incorrect guess means you must change you must make your profile photo a giraffe. 

Here's the riddle:

3 a.m., 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?

Users have declared two correct answers. Read past the giraffe to find out what they are.

Have your Facebook friends suddenly turned into lanky animals? Here's why.
