*** Spoiler Alert ***

This blog contains spoilers for the facebook Giraffe riddle, so don't read unless you want to ruin it for yourself.

However, if you've already taken the challenge, and especially if you've failed and now have a photo of a Giraffe as your profile, you may proceed.

I Call Shenanigans!!!

The fucking answer is NOT "your eyes"!!!

Its "the door" !!!!!

For the love of all that is holy.... if you or someone you know guessed "the door", but were told you were wrong and had to change your picture, change it back right now. Then go to your friend's page and post on their wall that you are calling Shenanigans, and that they should change their damn photo to a giraffe. If they don't believe you, you have my permission to link this blog.

Also if you guessed eyes... wipe that smug look off your face and become a damn giraffe right now.

For reference, here is the riddle:

It?s 3 a.m., the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors! It?s your parents and they are here for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open?

This is so easy if you really think about it. I'll try to break it down in chronological order real quick:

1. Its 3am, doorbell rings, you wake up
2. You discover your visitors
3. You have such and such items
4. What will you do now?

Notice how the question, #4, happens after the prior 3 are already established. That means the riddle is asking what you'll do after numbers 1-3 occurred (or stated).

So... If in #1, you woke up.... then guess what. Your eyes are already open. For the love of Deity, if you're already awake, you've already opened your eyes - you do not wake up and then later decide to open your eyes.

Sounds obvious right? Well, I'm sure some of you feel that way, but I can guarantee I'm going to get flamed over saying its not your eyes. Just watch.

At this point it gets pretty simple. Your eyes are already open, you're standing there with your parents at the door, so the first thing you open is naturally the door!

The other items in the riddle were just there to trick you. I'm sure that part everyone can agree on, eventually.

So yeah... that's my rant of the day. Sorry it wasn't about my music, again... haha.

Peace out BITCHESsssssssssssssssss

I call double shenann'z. Riddles set up a situation and then ask 'what's it all about'. If I may quote The Hobbit,
"Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters."
Gollum is giving all the information you need to solve the riddle upfront and it is up to you, or Bilbo, to use the information, relevant or not, to solve it. If it were a chronologically sensitive riddle, the question would have been posed as you stated in "#4." However, it was not. All of the information was given and then the question was asked without any reference to the order of events so what the recipient must draw their information from is the information as given in the riddle. A la, here is all the information you need, what happened first? It's "your eyes" don't be a jerk just because you lost The Game. ...also The Game.

Mister "AQ", I don't think riddles are automatically devoid of chronology, but only if you need to omit such in order to solve it. I believe the default is to assume normal rules of common sense apply first, and only if the riddle cannot be solved, at that point you can take such liberties.

PS, I will cut you ...
