(NEWS CENTER) - Have you seen many of your friends change their Facebook profile images to giraffes? The answer is wrapped in trivia.

Earlier this week a trivia question started getting shared on Facebook, it reads:

"So, why am I doing this? I responded to a riddle--and you will, too! Here it is, if you respond, respond only by MESSAGE! Do not give it away to anyone else! It's called The Great Giraffe Game! You get this riddle right you get to keep your profile pic. You get it wrong and you change your profile pic to a Giraffe for the next 3 days. MESSAGE ME ONLY SO YOU DON'T GIVE OUT THE ANSWER.

Here is the riddle: 3:00 am, the doorbell rings, and you wake up. You have unexpected visitors. It's your parents, and they have arrived for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread, and a variety of fine cheese. What is the first thing you open? If you get it right you have bragging rights on the post, but do not tell the answer! If you get it wrong, you must change your profile picture to a giraffe. Remember, send your answers to the riddle by MESSAGE ONLY--do not post answers below!"

(If you know the answer, don't spoil it for others).

So if you get the riddle wrong, you are expected to change your profile to a giraffe, if you get it right, you only get to walk away with the knowledge that you are the smartest person on Facebook today.

The game, according to The Daily Dot blog, was started by travel vlogger Andrew Strugnell. They say he has just over 3,500 subscribers, and that his Giraffe Challenge has gotten more than 25,000 likes in just the first day.
