The Statue of Liberty play is a fumble waiting to happen yet is a playground classic in the US.

Both sides line up. The quarterback gets the ball from the center, drops back and looks like he is going to throw the ball (ie He looks like the Statue of Liberty). Maybe he even does a pump fake. This freezes the defensive line and makes the secondary think they are going to defend against a pass. A running back or wide receiver is in a route to run laterally by the quarterback where he will take the ball from the Statue's hands to run the ball up the field if the offensive line has all of the nearby defenders occupied.
