Mama Mia!

If you ask a teenager what her parents do best, "embarrass me" might be one ready answer.

Now there's a website, Postcards From Yo Mama, where those mortified (or merely amused) by their maternal units can anonymously post wacky or overly earnest correspondence to brighten other peoples' days.

I must admit that I don't "get" all of the postings, but a few are quite hilarious. Here are two examples that made me laugh:

In other news, your father asked me this morning if he could borrow mynasal irrigator. I got very excited, thinking he was being pro-activein fighting the cold that’s got him sniffling non-stop already.  Turnsout he just wanted to use the irrigator to inject jelly into thecroissants he was baking. I could write a fucking book.

I’ve got to buckle down now and read this new script.

And:

Since some ‘older’ folks (i.e. your mother) read the web, you must bearwith my ignorance on this question: is Puffy the same person as SeanCoombs?

Have fun perusing, and happy Friday!
