Oh really? That's not what YA MAM said last night. ;)
Ya mam's so fat when she walked past the TV I missed 3 shows.
I heard that one's dear mother makes milkshakes that entice all the male juveniles to the yard.
Ya mam's so fat she LITERALLY sits around the house.
Damn right,they're better than yours.
