oblivious [uh-bliv-ee-uhs] adj. 1) unmindful; unconscious; unaware

What do you do when the prank you play on your parent goes unnoticed? You post it on Twitter, of course. This is exactly what a Wisconsin brother and sister did, and now the story has gone viral.

Kevin Manion decided he wanted to see just how aware his mom was of her surroundings, so he replaced family photos with those of the bug-eyed Steve Buscemi. And nothing happened.

“My brother has been replacing family photos with pics of Steve Buscemi and my mom hasn't noticed,” Claire Manion wrote on the social media site. She then includes various photos of the Golden Globe winner alongside other portraits.

Since she posted it on July 24, the Tweet has been retweeted more than 30,000 times and favorited 50,000 times. Among those retweeting is Judd Apatow. In response, Kevin wrote on Twitter, “Now this is an honor.”

I’m just jealous that I didn’t think of this first.
