We all scream for ice cream, but some people prefer to throw it! On Aug. 1, a hilarious photo of Reese Witherspoon hurling an ice cream cone at Meryl Streep’s head surfaced – and naturally, the internet had a field day with it. If you’re familiar with the critically acclaimed series Big Little Lies, you’ll easily recognize the vengeful look on Reese’s face as the dessert hurtles through the air towards an unsuspecting Meryl. The three-time Oscar winner joined the cast for the second season to play the mother of Perry Wright (played by Alexander Skarsgard ), the abusive husband of Nicole Kidman’s character, who is a friend of Reese’s Madeline Mackenzie.
The paparazzi shot taken while the actors were filming a particularly mischievous scene has opened the door to a host of hilarious captions. From alluding to the 69-year-old’s incredible award-winning streak to debunking scientific research, here are some of the best memes the World Wide Web had to offer.
The mother of three confirmed that she was spot on with her target!
Oh Matt! No need to pray. I got her ! https://t.co/nMitvPXETc— Reese Witherspoon (@RWitherspoon) August 1, 2018

Others were very impressed with Reese’s magic trick
Reese Witherspoon is so powerful that she can keep two scoops of ice cream on a cone while throwing it at Meryl Streep. https://t.co/uk9Cfd43Y6— Walt (@UberKryptonian) August 1, 2018
