The accompanying picture? Harry and Marv, the unfortunate criminals in the Christmas classic Home Alone.

Fans of the movie will remember that Harry and Marv attempt to rob the home of the McCallister family while they’re away for Christmas in Paris. Unbeknownst to them, their youngest son Kevin was accidentally left at home and he rigs the home with booby traps when they attempt to break in.

So, you definitely don’t need to cover your steps in ice and grab your BB gun. But, you can have a good laugh.
