Yo Momma So Extraordinary By Zachary Reese & Ethan McCreadie Paperback
Release Date: April 5, 2011
Yo Momma So Extraordinary reminds me of a Saturday Night Live-type skit in which the classic “yo momma” insult joke is turned around and made distinctly unfunny on purpose. Meant to be tongue-in-cheek, these un-jokes are supposed to set right all the wrongs done to mothers all across the globe by such standards as, “Yo momma so fat, when she sits around the house, she sits AROUND the house.”
In this book, Zachary Reese and Ethan McCreadie bring us new classics, such as, “Yo momma so conscientious, she asks me to “˜wrap it up’ even though we all know she’s been through menopause” and “Yo momma so loving and accepting that I almost feel a little guilty about what we did. Almost.”
The book states on the front cover that this is “a treasury of yo momma compliments” but, as indicated by the above examples, I would say these compliments are more of the backhanded variety. Most are just downright corny along with the ridiculous photographs peppered throughout depicting the action of these “˜compliments’.
Overall, Yo Momma So Extraordinary is just plain silly and might work well as a gag gift for the collector of all things “˜yo momma’, but that’s probably about it.
