My nephew, besides being super cute since birth (I still can't believe that man thought I was his grandmother), is also pretty clever - though not quite able to pick up on his mother's and is aunts' inside jokes.
I never really understood the whole "yo mamma" craze with people. Why is it ok to joke about people's mothers and why, for some, is it the most offensive thing you can say to a person? Why are some people, who don't like their mothers, instantly offended when their mother is brought up? I may never know.
Because I don't get the yo mamma jokes, years ago, I started saying yo mamma to all my siblings. Being that we all have the same parents, I thought it was pretty funny. Most of the time, it would actually be used in context: Who is going to make dinner tonight? Yo mamma. Who are you talking to on the phone? Yo mamma. That woman is really pretty! So is yo mamma.
We started saying it so much and we got so comfortable with it that we sometimes forgot NOT to say it when our mother was around. At first, we thought she didn't hear. Then we started trying to play it off, "Yo mamma... gram is going to happen sooner than you think." "Yo mamma... is such a wonderful woman, isn't she?"
Sometimes, she would give us The Look.
But, now, sometimes, she actually says it herself, too. Which is often absolutely hilarious!!
The other day, Kid Sis #2 was driving home from a water park with her son. The young four year old asked where they were going, as many kids tend to ask when riding in a car. KS#2 said, "We're going to the house." Nephew, "Who's house?" KS#2, "Yo mamma's house."
Being the clever one that he is, Nephew thought for a moment, and then proceeded to tell my sister that, "Actually, Mommy, it's my house and Daddy's house, too."
Here's another great one from a child:
