This reminds me of Grant Morrison’s story about how when his cat got sick… he did everything he could to help her, he took her to the vet, he liquefied her food so he could feed her through a dropper, he even PRAYED for her to get better…
there was still a part of him watching, and rubbing its hands, and saying “well, if she dies, at least I’ll be able to use it in my comic. It’ll add a nice touch of poignancy.”
“My mom is dead” is the best possible response to any your mom joke, regardless of whether or not it’s true. Awkward silence abound!
My ex-boyfriend’s older brother had a t-shirt that read “I (heart) your mom.” When I complimented him on it, he replied, “Thanks! It can cause some awkward moments, though, because when people see it, they say, ‘I love YOUR mom!’ Well, my mom’s dead.”
me: “…You should press them for more details. Like, ask them about her prowess.”
him: “…Like, ‘Is she moist?'”
me: *busting out laughing*
him: “She’s a pile of ASH!”
The best counter-response to “My mom is dead.” is “BECAUSE I FUCKED HER SO HARD!” By far.
Becca – that was great, lol.
PS – Of course this strip is too. Just clarifying, lol
