Have you heard about the giraffe riddle on facebook? Surely, either you or one of your many friends has come across this rather peculiar trend. The story goes, that you have to solve the following riddle and if you don’t, you have to set your profile picture to a giraffe:
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?
Clearly there is only one correct answer: ‘your eyes’.
But many people also put ‘the door’. Can this be argued correct? Well, actually it can. Aren’t some of us insomniacs?
The riddle seems a bit silly, but nevertheless, it is fun to watch how many people get engaged in this game.
