I need help with this riddle:

What do you call people who repair your vehicles and jump out to scare you?

It's 2 words and "we don't call them that and we think they're quite ethical."

    $\begingroup$ @Duck Yes, I think this is the answer -- a mechanic is a person who repairs vehicles. (And it's referring to a recent comment from EA on their rebranding of "lootboxes" as "surprise mechanics".) $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jun 22 at 1:49

How about a "jump starter"?

It may not exactly fit the question, but:

  • You can use one to 'repair' a car if the battery is flat.
  • If someone scares you unexpectedly you have experienced a "jump start".
