CNN reports that a new internet meme involving a riddle is causing people to replace their profile pics with giraffes if their friends send them the riddle and they get the riddle wrong.
Here’s the riddle from the story:
“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?”

3 Worse Things To Open First In This Situation Than The Actual Answer
1. A Denny’s Franchise. Sure you want to impress your parents with an awesome breakfast, and your girlfriend with streaming drunk frat boys ordering Moons Over My Hammy in your living room every night… but breakfast is the cheapest meal of the day, so you shouldn’t be dishing out serious coin to buy a breakfast-making franchise.
2. Your wallet to order a Slap Chop. The good news is your impulsive late night purchases are much cheaper than the people buying franchises at 3:00 a.m. The bad news is that your idea of putting raw eggs in a slap chop does not sound like a winner.
3. A message from someone on Facebook asking you to turn your profile pic to a giraffe if you get the riddle wrong. Did you notice what you get if you win this bet? Nothing! That’s the worst kind of bet around. And if you’ve identified yourself to the world on Facebook (by replacing your photo with the giraffe) as the person who takes bets that offer no prize, you can bet people will be lining up on your door to challenge you to Three-Card Monte scams!*
*Actually, you can’t bet that – we’ve already established betting is not your thing.
