Joke of The Day


Your momma's so fat she falls off both sides of the bed
Your Momma's so fat, when she walks by the TV I miss a season of the Cosby Show.
Your momma's so fat she asked for a water bed and they threw a blanket over the Pacific ocean.
Your momma's so fat she caught the flesh-eating virus three years ago.
Your mamma's so fat, she put on a Malcolm X jacket and a helicopter landed on her back.
Your mamma's so fat when god said let there be light he asked her to step out of the way
Your momma's so poor when I rang the doorbell she stuck her head out the window and yelled ding dong.
Your momma's so poor she can't even pay attention.
Your momma's so dumb she tripped over a cordless phone.
Your mamma's so dumb she spent all day arranging M&M's in alphabetical order.
Your momma's so ugly, she went to a haunted house and came out with an application.
Your mamma's such a drunk,  If it weren't for the olives in martinis, she would starve to death.
