Full disclosure: Imagine being a 10-year-old kid and having pro wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper do a backflip over your parents’ fence once a week and fighting you in your back yard.
Too. Awesome. For. Words. Yet that was the childhood that some of us here at Facts Not Memes enjoyed, since the late Piper was our parents’ next-door-neighbor when we were growing up in Oregon.
He was a villain on the pro wrestling circuit, but in the old neighborhood, he was like an extra super-fun uncle. What a guy!
We get a little choked up every time we see one of the thousands of memes like this one, created from Roddy’s simultaneously awful and wonderful film “They Live.”
If you haven’t seen the film, Piper’s character finds a pair of magic sunglasses that allow him to see the alien creeps that are actually running the world. Which… basically explains every meme you’ve ever seen with Piper in it.
Anyway, in this meme, Rowdy Roddy Piper gets a good look at Chuck and Nancy – and he sees what’s really going on.
