Why are 'your mom' jokes so popular?

== == * "Your Mom Jokes" have been popular for years (back into the 40s.) There was "Your mom wears army boots" to "Your moms so ugly that when she walks by the screen door the flies can't get out fast enough" to "Your mama is so fat she has to buy her clothes at Jones, Test and Awning!" It goes on and on. At first it was just funny jokes, but now a days it's better to be cautious about "mom jokes" because some of those burly guys out there really do love their mamas. The jokes about mothers are mainly to get under the skin of the other person. == == * 'Your mom' jokes are so popular because they don't discriminate between the person you're telling the joke to. They are not created to be racial or sexist jokes and because of this can be enjoyed by everyone and told to anyone. Some of my favorites are:Your mama's so ugly that when you were born they slapped her! Your mama's so fat, she fell in the grand canyon and got stuck. Your mama's so fat that when she used to go to school she sat by everybody! Your mama's so clumsy she got tangled up in a cordless phone! Your mama's so poor she can't afford to pay attention! your mommas so short she tried to kill herself by jumping off a sidewalk curb. * Because your momma is like chicken and dumplings...servings are family sized.
