In my Dad’s garage, keeping watch over his motor vehicles are me and my sister’s standups of Shawn Michaels and The Rock (respectively). They were actually placed there to keep my mom from running into things when she pulled in the garage but now I see their potential meme-ness is being squandered.
My dad bought my brother a life-size cardboard cut out of Michael Jordan when we were teens and that night while we were in the backyard playing we heard our mother scream at the top of her lungs. We all run inside to see her on the floor half scared and half laughing. She had gone into his room and turned on the light and immediately thought a giant black man had broken into the house. We all got a good laugh from that
I tried scaring her again by putting the cutout in the shower on April Fools but by then she was used to it.
