"Your Mom" Jokes are insulting quips directed toward someone's mother, which typically depict her as hideous, overweight, stupid, promiscuous or poor.


Various maternal insults[1] have been recorded throughout history. According to the Discover Magazine blog,[2] the earliest known example was written on a tablet by a Babylonian student in 1,500 BCE. On the tablet, an incomplete riddle about a mother was discovered, translating as "of your mother is by the one who has intercourse with her. What/who is it?" In 2 Kings 9:22 in the Hebrew Bible, with the earliest texts found in the 9th century CE, the rebel Jehu greets King Joram by insulting his mother.

When Joram saw Jehu, he said, "Is it peace, Jehu?" And he answered, "What peace, so long as the harlotries of your mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?"

In the play Timon on Athens, written by William Shakespeare in the early 1600s, the character Apemantus replies to an insult from a painter by comparing his mother to a dog:

Painter: "Y'are a dog."
Apemantus: "Thy mother's of my generation. What's she, if I be a dog?"


In 1991, the hip hop group The Pharcyde released their first demo, which contained a song titled "Ya Mama" featuring various jokes about a person's mother (shown below).
