We have all seen friends profile pictures changing to giraffes, and then stupidly we ask ‘Why are you changing your profile pic to a giraffe?’
‘Oh its simple’ they reply, ‘you just need to answer a riddle’
Seems easy enough, you read the riddle and you ponder, and think a little more. Surely the answer is obvious, how could anyone be so dumb to get that simple riddle wrong. But really, isnt that the whole point of a game, a viral bit of fun for one silly evening? a little bit of humour on your facebook wall rather than the usual cryptic “Could life be any worse?” or relationship updates changing more often than your mother moaning about you changing your knickers when you were a kid.
I joined in. I got the riddle wrong. I changed my profile picture to a giraffe.
Amazingly, after a million PM’s from others joining in and having a laugh at failures and the few gloats from the smart arses, and some funny random not even listed in the riddle answers, no one had their accounts hacked Shock horror.
The worst that happened was yet again the few ‘grown ups’ or the few sour faced prunes who got a little cheesed off at being a giraffe had to go and spoil it for people by blogging the answer, and not only that but by also blogging that the wrong answer was the right one.
Are your lives so dull you have to spoil a silly game that made us all act like children for an evening?
We all know what the right answer is dont we???
You dont have to open the door, or your eyes, or even the jam.
If your parents knock on the door at 3am for breakfast you open your mouth to tell them to “P!$$ Off, its 3am FFS”
