Why is it that all moms have the same sense of humor? Was there a secret pact established among those over a certain age?
Believe it or not, they were young once. And it is almost guaranteed that they did not always find the same things funny. You’ll very rarely see a young person claim to not appreciate the profanity in someone’s monolog. It just doesn’t happen.
So what kind of traumatic experience did they go through and why did it only affect their ability to laugh? There has to be some kind of graph featuring statistics about a sense of humor and how it correlates with a mid-life crisis.
We’re really starting to wonder if there is some sort of “Mom Laugh Training Camp” that conditions them to only laugh when a baby eats a lemon on Youtube.
Yes, that must be it.
Here is a transcript of their secret invitation letter:
You are cordially invited to attend our “Mothers Are Funny Too” (MAFT) day camp. As a mother of three it can be hard to get your work done all while keeping a light, but hip demeanor.
You work hard for your wardrobe and your sense of humor should showcase that. Make your loose fitting blouse say “HEY KIDS!” by learning the ins and outs of comedy appropriate for your age group.
We offer a variety of courses that are sure to capture your interest.
Some of our more popular courses include:
- Corny Knock Knock Jokes
- Clever One-Liners From A Pastor
- “Aw, don’t make fun of him.”
- Racism Is Funny (When A Person Of Color Isn’t Around)
- An HGTV Host And Their Zany Sense Of Humor
- George Lopez 101
The day camp will last a total of eight days, but will only be offered on Saturdays*. We are willing to work around your schedule because we understand how busy you are!
And do not worry, there is no need to RSVP to this email because we know how long it takes you to type back.
All you need to do is go to the nearest Whole Foods next Saturday and look for the 48-year-old woman in the cream-colored visor. Her name is Sue and she will be slowly driving the shuttle van down the left lane all the way to the camp.
You don’t need to worry about a thing. Just put on your freshest pair of clogs and relax.
Moms R Da Bomb,
*We know your Sundays are dedicated to cleaning your house because your husband just can’t seem to find that broom.”
Shit. It all makes sense now.
