Now that Christopher has gone back to America and Crystal has gotten herself a boyfriend, I have been spending mass amounts of time with the fabulous Tressa-chan. What do we do together? What most friends do... eat food, sing kareoke, watch movies, etc... Not long ago, Tressa and I were nursing a hangover by watching "Napoleon Dynamite". If you are not aware of this movie please go to your nearest Video Rental facility and pick it up. If you are one of those people who saw this movie and thought it wasn't funny please go to the doctor's so he/she can see if you are infact missing the humorus bone.
OK! It is a stupid movie. However, the more you watch it, the funnier it becomes. Same theory can be said for "Dog Show", "Tommy Boy", "Mall Rats" and really cheesy 1970's couple self help videos (the wall paper, sofa, love seat, lampshades and beadspread were all in the same brown/orange/yellow flower pattern). Since, Tressa and I think this movie is a romping good time, you can conclude that we have seen it a few hundred times.
Now there is this part in the movie where Deb comes to Napoleon's front door trying to sell "Galmor Shots by Deb" and those plastic keychain things we used to make at summer camp. She says she is just trying to make some money so she can got to college. The next moment Napoleon's older brother, Kip, shouts "Your Mom Goes to College" and Deb is so embaressed she runs away. Now "Your Mom Goes to College" is a pathetic joke, but Kip just thought he was sooooooo damn clever that he can't help but chuckle at his own dumb ass joke.
Tressa and I, taking a que from Kip, have been adding "Your Mom..." type of jokes to everything. No matter how mundane... Your Mom either has it, does it or likes it. We were tying to test a theory... "Your Mom..." Jokes are funny no matter what! However, we have found one instance where "Your Mom..." Jokes are not funny. "Your Mom.." jokes are not funny when the statement is actually true or was true at one point. Main example...
Last week a bunch of us went camping. And sitting around the campfire, having a couple of beers with our wieners (your Mom likes Wieners... hahahaha. See how funny it is?) the topic somehow changed to lesbians.
Tressa: " Your Mom's a Leeee........"
Quiet akwardness ensues over the party for about 15 seconds... before we all burst out laughing.
Conclusion: Stating an actual fact that someone's mother is/was a lesbian is not funny. Forgeting that your friend's mother used to date women, trying to make a "Your Mom" joke of a lesbian conversation but rembering half way thru the joke, thus not being able to finish the "Your Mom" statement and creating an uncomfotable silence for a couple of moments...
Love ya Tress... and so does my Mom!
