I've been saying "THATS WHAT SHE SAID" to everything now.

... maybe I should stop.


A friend came to my apartment and constantly replied with "that's what she said" until my roommate and I turned the tables and fired that reply at all of his statements until we had him rolling on the couch with laughter while in tears. I think this solution is sort of like sweating out a cold (and yes, I know this doesn't work).

This is particularly noticable when the 'mum' joke refers to you having sexual relations with said mother. Somehow it only really works when the mum in question is some abstract parent whose honour can by sullied at will without any embarassment or shame to the attacker.

If you want an even more abstract metajoke, try developing a skill with this http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=soz number 4. (and rate it up!)


It also works when she's a MILF.

Ha, my boyfriend and I actually have an agreement going not to mention the game during sex. Because that's totally relevant to this discussion.

That's what SHE said

Or when she's not. In short, I disagree with StillAlive, it's still funny. Maybe that's because I have no sense of honour.

Just once, I'd like to see someone crack a "your mom" joke and have a nearby woman turn around and backhand slap/punch out/swear at & tell off them. Or all three.

Just once.
I was thinking of either meditating or napping, but the way I do it, there's not much difference except in the explanation to the rest of my family.

Although I do have one friend who's exempt from "your mom" jokes. His mom is so ridiculously awesome (what can I say? She makes her son's friends cookies) that I just can't bring myself to say anything bad about her.

The trouble with "that's what she said" is that it gets used way too much. People try using it once just to see what everyone is on about, but then they find themselves going back to it all the time. Even though it's old and uninspired, it stays popular just because it's so easy. It seems to be contagious in nature.

The same applies to your mom.

This is a great example of how substituting into the accusative or predicate can be more affective than into the nominative. Utilizing the homophone of "become" redirects the audiences attention to what was the linking verb (which are usually glossed over), almost forcing them to reread the sentence to catch the new meaning.

"You turn every conversation into a "your mom" joke and it becomes your mom."

Additionally, this substitution manages to imply that your mom is attractive and therefore sexually desirable.

And then, after being beaten up and yelled at, I would say... "That's what she said."

This comic was timely since I was just recently annoying my wife with the "That's what she said". (After all, that is what she said...)

Here's another great meta-joke that my friends and I from college use frequently:

"... ... --er"
"-- 'er? I hardly even know her!"

Classic example:
"They built a huge super collider."
"Super collide 'er? I hardly even know her!"

or
"You're in grave danger!"
"Dang 'er? I hardly even know her!"

and the inevitable:
"Pass the salt"
"Salt... 'er? I hardly even know her!"

Enjoy!

Liked the comic.

I appreciate a good mom joke every now and then, but those one liners can be too much.

Once had a guy who sat next to me in Chem and he said your mom jokes literally at least 20 times in about a half hour! "Your mom's chemistry, your mom's a mol, your mom's a proton, your mom's an electron."

When in conversation with a few people, with at least one female, I like to turn to one of the non-females after the female has talked, tap them on the shoulder and say, "that's what she said."

I went so far as to make a "your mom..." joke to my brother in the car with my mom and dad. halarity briefly ensued but then things turned for the worse. funny in retrospect though.

i also have a habit of telling people who make jokes like these that she's not milf-worthy at all. brings the humor to a screeching halt. but i still laugh...

That was awesome. This comic made my existence. (Your MOM made my existence!)

I'm going to need a printout of this. I was holding off on plastering my door with xkcd, but this is the straw that broke the camel's back. (Broke your MOM's camel!) Unfortunately, I have a feeling that this is the climax of all xkcd-based mom jokes; a shame for sure.

At a mate's party we were all talking shit and one of my friends made a joke to another about how hairy he is. In response, he said "your mum doesn't seem to mind it". The first guy, being faux-offended, said "I'mma fuck you up" to which the second guy replied "that's what she said".

It was so perfect it seemed like it was set up.

I once knew a kid who would literally turn everything anyone said into a bad 'your mom' joke. Once, after I responded with a mildly witty retort, he said, "I can't think of a good comeback. You think of one for me." Although it was the epitome of laziness, it was effectively the most amusing bad comeback he ever made.

The best 'that's what she said' moment ever:

In reference to knocking on the door, my friend said, "usually I just bang really hard until somebody eventually comes!" Needless to say, I couldn't resist yelling TWSS.

I really wish I had the Carebearstare power every single time someone does this to me. I don't mind actual 'your mom' jokes that work, but unlike a particular girl who I had the very unfortunate experience of having to be confined into a small bus-sized space with...

Sample scenario #1:
Student: You know what I hate?
Girl: Your mom! (high pitched giggle)
Students: -groan-

Sample scenario #2:
(general silence)
Girl: Your mom!
Me: Oh, come on!

Well, the second scenario is a tad censored.

I must disagree with you. These are my favorite kind. I find that using 'your mom' in a situation where it actually fits, pretty much kills the joke for me.

Granted, 95% of the time, the 'your mom' jokes are between my wife and myself, so the mom in question is either my mother-in-law or my mom. My wife will also frequently give 'your mom' responses to our kids, then realize what she just said.

Also,

I knew someone like this in high school. He had it really badly, to the point of *joining* conversations, delivering said line, and leaving. Constantly.

At one point, he did this just as myself and another lens-wearer were engaging in the near-inevitable struggle for dominance. (If you wear glasses, or have at some point, you know that whoever has the worst vision wins a subtle sort of cachet. It's best if you can establish this by *actually* exchanging frames, but quoting diopters will do for the contact set.) This led to the following:

Me: ... yeah, I'm pretty much blind without my glasses. Not literally, but...
Guy: Your MOM'S blind.
Me: ::Look of shock, anger, and repressed tears. Really good fake repressed tears:: Actually... she IS. ::glares::
Followed by about 15 seconds of horrified, pale-faced silence.
Guy:: (stammering) Dude... like, really? Man... I...
Me: (Conversationally) No, not really. I just wanted to mess with you.

It was a fine moment.

Oh me yarm EPIC WIN. I'd been grinning at the comic and the thread, but this comment was the one that had me laugh, get up, go explain it to my roommate, and then laugh again. hehe.

also:
I did a comment on a thread here somewhere re: "i got your X right here" series of jokes. I've never been a big fan of 'your mom' mostly cause mine died a while back. but one of my best friends always says "your mother" or "the mother"... then his mom died recently, and about 5 days after he told me... the BEST POSSIBLE SCENARIO for a "YOUR MOM" comeback came up... and i used it. and he went "but... oh i guess i did it to you all those years. haha"

win.

When I saw this comic, I squeed, because it is so me. I actually had to spend the summer repressing all "your mom" jokes because I was on an archaeological dig with people would wouldn't have appreciated "your mom" jokes, and then I was teaching knitting and crocheting to young children, and it would not have been professional in that setting to use your mom jokes.

Fast forward to September, where after months of repressing "your mom" jokes, I finally had a house mate who I could get into "your mom"-offs with. Unfortunately all good examples have fled my brain (this might be due to the fact that I haven't eaten substantial food in 22 hours. Your mom kept me up until 4am, and I didn't wake up until 2:30PM and didn't have access to food until now) but I'll post again when I can remember something amusing.

1st Prof- Professor, I wonder if we may begin by discussing the ways in which this period saw the beginning of social disintegration.

2nd Prof- Indeed. The collapse of the extended family meant that for literaly thousands of women the only way of supporting themselves was to turn to prositution. There are several accounts of this, but perhaps the most harrowing is "My Life As A Prositute". A first person account by a women who being very ugly, and suffering from scroffula, could not charge very much for her services, and so was compelled, alas, to perform all sorts of degrading sexual acts with over 100,000 men.

1st Prof- Well, it sounds like a very important source text, this uhh.."My Life As A Prositute" I wonder is there a mont edition of the publication?

2nd Prof- Ahm, yes. It's um...Videnfelt & Nickleson, 2nd edition, price 27 pounds and 99 pences. That's umm..."My Life As a Prositute" by........ your mum

Unless you've actually slept with the mum (I'm an aussie, no apologies).

Then it's just hilarious.


Maybe you should apologise for not capitalising Aussie. It's short for Australian, after all.



Maybe I should capitalize Your Mom.

Re: Discussion about Your Mom

i've decided to refrain from using "your mom" jokes for awhile, the last time i used it did not work out so well. i always insulted this guy in my class, and tended to use "you mom" jokes alot on him, but then a couple months back his mom had a heart attack and died and I was nice to him for awhile. A couple weeks later though, he walked in on a conversation between another friend of mine and I where we had been using "your mom" jokes continuously, so I answered him with "Your mom likes NASCAR (he had just asked us something about it) :P.... :shock: ....dude....I'm so sorry..."
