Why are my friends giraffes?

  • The Great Giraffe Challenge is an online riddle
  • Get it wrong and you have to change your Facebook pic to a giraffe
Why are my friends giraffes?

You may have noticed something strange in your Facebook feed. Your friends are now giraffes. John Smith is now a giraffe. Aunt Sally is now a giraffe. That weird guy from the office is now a giraffe.

What's the deal?

It is all part of the Great Giraffe Challenge. The Great Giraffe Challenge is simple. Answer a riddle correctly and you can keep your profile picture. Answer it incorrectly and you have to set your Facebook profile picture to a giraffe for three days and repost the riddle to your friends. Started by Andrew Strugnell, the Great Giraffe Challenge already has more than 70,000 likes on Facebook... that's a whole lot of giraffes.
