    I got this is an email a while back and thought I'd share.

    Mrs. Botchagalupe comes to visit her son Anthony for dinner.

    Anthony lives with a female roommate, Maria.

    During the course of the meal, Mama can't help but notice how pretty
    Anthony's roommate is.

    She had long been suspicious of the relationship between the two, and
    this made her more curious.

    Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she
    started to wonder if there was more between Anthony and his roommate
    than meets the eye.

    Reading his Mom's thoughts, Anthony volunteered, "I know what you must
    be thinking, but I assure you, Mama, Maria and I are just roommates."

    About a week later, Maria came to Anthony saying, "Ever since your
    mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the silver sugar bowl.

    You don't suppose she took it, do you?"

    Well, I doubt it, but I'll e-mail her, just to be sure."

    So he sends his Mom an email:

    Dearest Mama,
    I'm not saying that you took the sugar bowl from my house, and I'm not
    saying that you didn't take it, I'm just saying that it has been missing
    ever since you were here for dinner. Love, Anthony

    Several days later, Anthony receives an email response from his Mama:

    Figlio mio,
    I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with Maria, and I'm not saying that
    you 'do not' sleep with her. But the fact remains that if she was
    sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the sugar bowl by now.
    Love, Mama

    MORAL: Never lie to your Mother

    tsk tsk

    I thought this was quite cute.

    That is cute....also sounds a lot like a typical West Indian mother!

    (wow this really got buried)

    I bet it could fit the profile of many, many mums.

    Here's an oldie (still makes me chuckle though)....

    Two nuns, Sister Marilyn and Sister Helen, are traveling through Europe in their car. They get to Transylvania and are stopped at a traffic light. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a tiny little Dracula jumps onto the hood of the car and hisses through the windshield.

    "Quick, quick!" shouts Sister Marilyn. "What shall we do?"

    "Turn the windshield wipers on. That will get rid of the abomination," says Sister Helen.

    Sister Marilyn switches them on, knocking Dracula about, but he clings on and continues hissing at the nuns.

    "What shall I do now?" she shouts.

    "Switch on the windshield washer. I filled it up with Holy Water at the Vatican," says Sister Helen.

    Sister Marilyn turns on the windshield washer. Dracula screams as the water burns his skin, but he clings on and continues hissing at the nuns.

    "Now what?" shouts Sister Marilyn.

    "Show him your cross," says Sister Helen.

    "Now you're talking," says Sister Marilyn. She opens the window and shouts, "Get the f*** off our car!"
