When I was home for Thanksgiving, I had this sudden epiphany about what I think of as “Mom humor”, a type of comedy that I do not think gets the recognition it deserves.
For me, Mom Humor is defined by it’s physicality and lack of squeamishness (I have found that a lot of the jokes my mom makes revolve around the act of giving birth to me). It is also pretty formless and isn’t usually in the form of a joke (which I guess people associate with Dad Humor).
Anyway, I talked about it with some friends, and they seemed to know what I was talking about. And now I can’t stop thinking about it.
So, I wanna hear all y’all’s thoughts on Mom Humor, especially some quotes too.
To get the ball rolling, one of the first things my mom said to me upon my arriving home, as we walked the dog, was “I love her butt. It’s so tight!”
