(WTVR)– Perhaps you’ve taken notice that your Facebook friends have started changing their profile photos to a giraffe?

It turns out they haven’t been hacked. Instead they failed to solve a riddle that’s spreading like wildfire across Facebook. The honor code is that if you get the riddle wrong, you have to change your profile photo.
