Title: The Great Giraffe Challenge
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 30, 2013, 12:42:21 PM
Step on up and try The Great Giraffe Challenge!

Here's the deal: I give you a riddle, and you try to solve it. If you get the answer right, you get to keep your avatar as is. But if you get it wrong, you have to change your picture to a giraffe for three days. If you want to guess, send me a PM instead of replying here, so that you won't give away the answer. If you do get it right, though, feel free to post a brag-a-licious comment!

And now, for the riddle: You wake up hearing knocking on your door at 3 AM. It's unexpected visitors: your parents. Being a good child and a good host, you decide to fix them breakfast. You have bread, honey, wine, cheese, and strawberry jam. What is the first thing you open?

Remember: get it right, you keep your pic and all bragging rights are yours. Get it wrong, and change your avatar to a giraffe...

[This has been gaining popularity on Facebook, so I wanted to try bringing it here. I didn't come up with this.]

...nope. Well, I was on the right track!

I have a question about this: Why, if I'm a child, do I even have wine?

So I looked it up; my answer is correct (and honestly if you read it carefully the other answer makes NO sense at all. That's what screwed me over...)

So my picture is staying me c;

Blue had a different answer than me, so I got it "wrong". But really, it seems like this fb game is rigged so NOBODY can win

I think the other answer does make sense. And really, it's just a game.

Just submitted an answer. Wondering if I got it right or not.

EDIT: Ugh. I think I got it wrong. I reread it and realized what I think is the right answer. How could I not have seen it before?

But seriously, why would your parents be out at 3 AM? Why would they want breakfast at 3 AM? Why would they want WINE for breakfast? Or a sandwich?
