A quick and crazy history of yo mama jokes
Rather its yo mama, momma, or moma, some insults are just classic. And what better way to make fun of someone than to attack their mom. Its a low blow, but it always hit. But, it wasn’t just modern culture that talked about your momma. People have been dissing your mom since before Shakespeare. Some even believe your mama jokes can be found in ancient civilization. Idk bout all that.
Shakespeare, first Known Yo Momma Joke Written
The big explosion of yo momma jokes came in the 90’s In living Color. This was my, along with many, exposure to the culture of dissing mother figures. In this skit a game show called “The Dirty Dozens” took turns dissing moms with Jeopardy type categories. The skit spoofed modern game shows by making fun of other contenders and their mother’s weight problem, lack of education, and sexual promiscuous behavior. Good stuff.
