NBC12 News is wondering if when you logged on to Facebook Tuesday, did you notice many of your friends had changed their pictures? They all look like giraffes, long-necked, brown-eyed gentle giants staring out at the camera lens, all telling you the same thing, they have changed their profile picture.
Don't worry, they will change back to their regular people-type pictures soon. It's all part of a game being circulated on Facebook, and it has really taken off. All the giraffe pictures mean is your friends aren't real great at solving riddles.
It's easy to play. You are given a riddle, and have to "message" the sender with the answer. If you get the answer right,your name is posted as a winner. But if you get the answer wrong, well, you have to change your profile picture for three days.
The game is being called "The Great Giraffe Challenge." The riddle most associated with this game is this one:
"It's 3 A.M. the doorbell rings and you wake up. 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."
If you're interested in finding the answer, unless you already know it, you can do a Google search, or better yet, wait for a friend to ask you on Facebook.
