He Started This...

And now for you Black History Moment for the Day (Black History Month PBS Theme Music)...

Elijah "Gold Mouth" Brown...A legend...He was the man that started it all...THE YO' MAMA JOKE...It came about on a hot summer day in Cotton Plant, Arkansas...He was on the porch taking a break with a few of his friends...I actually have a picture of the porch he was chilling on...

Well back to the story...He was taking a break from helping his father tend to the land...One of his friend, Lil Jimmy, came around the corner with a new pair of shoes on...His friend started bragging on his kicks...And then his friend got bold and started calling him poor because "Gold Mouth" shoes had it's own air condition (for the slow people that means that they had a few holes in them)...I really didn't understand why Lil Jimmy was calling him poor cause both of their parents were sharecroppers...Well he couldn't be embarrassed in front of his friends...He was real quick on his feet...He knew that Lil Jimmy mother had a big problem...And that was her weight...So he struck back and said...

Yo' mama so fat, she got more rolls than a bakery!

Yeah...I know...His joke was real weak! But that was the beginning...He knew that it wasn't the best joke...But he kept on practicing until he mastered his new found artform...By next summer he was pilling off "yo' mamas" left and right...He is also the author of such famous "yo' mama" jokes as;

Yo' mama's so fat, even God couldn't lift her spirits!

Yo' mama's lips so big, she doesn't use chapstick -- she uses Mop 'n' Glo!

Yo mama's house is so dusty the roaches ride around in dune buggies.


AND

Yo mama's so dirty, plants grow off her back.

Good old "Gold Mouth"...The godfather of talking about yo' mama...This was another Black History Moment (Black History Month PBS Theme Music)...I'll keep you posted
