A popular style of joke
, based on the misconception
dislikes their mother-in-law
. They are best said in an English
accent, and must always promote
the idea that the mother-in-law
etc, and are best punctuated with a high-pitched
'eeeh!' before or after the joke. Similar to 'Yo Mamma
' jokes, but a bit of a step up in class (not much of a step though) and usually a bit cleverer.
A few examples...
"Eeeh! I wouldn't say my mother-in-law's ugly, but the milkman flirts with me!"
"I saw six men punching and kicking my mother-in-law. The wife said; 'Aren't you going to help?' I said; 'No, six should be enough!"
"There was a knock at the door, I knew it was the mother in law because all the mice were throwing themselves on the traps."
And for all you Viz
fans, the Roger Mellie
one is (predictably):
"Eeeh! My mother-in-law, she's a right cunt."
