"ich weiß, wo Dein Haus wohnt"

My daughter, who spends most of her waking hours either doing Reddit things or playing League of Legends, brought this supposedly amusing/ironic meme to me and asked why it's funny: ich weiß, wo Dein Haus wohnt. (I know where your house lives?) I've had one semester of German, certainly not enough to get the joke. Can someone explain it to me? Thanks.
