Who came up with the first yo mama joke?

The legend has it that slaves told the first jokes of that sort. While they were on ships, it was uncomfortable, it was crowded, everyone was bored, and few spoke the same language. Some words are almost universal among languages and cultures, and words related to parents are on that list. They realized they all had mothers somewhere and insulted each other's mother to get a rise and perhaps keep some of their sanity.
