WORLDWIDE MOMISMS 

Just so you’ll know, I pronounce the word Mom-ism, and  it has nothing to do with Mitt Romney’s religious leanings.  Everybody’s mom has, or had, those pearls of wisdom that we, with our “not-yet-so-worldly-minds”, couldn’t even begin to argue with.  Take for instance, “If all the kids in the neighborhood drink poison, would you drink it too?”  Go ahead, let me see you get out of that one!

Maybe you’ve wondered what moms around the world tell there kids (and maybe you don’t give a rat’s patout).  If you’ve never given any thought to the subject, well don’t sweat it.  I have and I did some research and came up with some interesting results.  If you’re a mom, feel free to use these when the opportunity to do so arises.

Things that Moms worldwide tell their children:

American Moms: Bobby, be careful with that BB gun. You’ll put somebody’s eye out!

Sicilian Moms: After you push Giovanni off of the roof; you come straight home, Capiche?

American Moms: Close that door! You think that we’re air conditioning the whole neighborhood?

Eskimo Moms: Close the refrigerator door. You’ll melt everything in the igloo!

American Moms: Drive on the right side of the road dear.

American Moms: Play with fire and you’ll get burned.

Terrorist Moms: Hassan, I told you one hundred times, don’t play with your father’s plastic explosives!

American Moms: Don’t gulp your soda Tommy.

Irish Moms: No Danny, yah let the whiskey roll around in yer mouth fer awhile, savor it, then yah swallow it.

American Moms: Don’t play with your food.

Oriental Moms: Quit playing with that dog and bring it in kitchen now!

American Moms: Why these ears are so dirty, you could grow potatoes in them.

Redneck Moms: Damn boy, you got another tater growin’ in that year?!

American Moms: Make an ugly face like that and one day a north wind is going to come and freeze it that way.

  1. I stopped after the section with the questions, but those were fun – probably because I’m old! I got nine of the ten. Well, actually eight of the nine, since number ten was just… groovy, baby!

    1. Glutton for punishment, huh???? I am going to start a new policy. After 5 visits I’ll mark your card and you’ll get a free visit. Sort of my version of a “frequent blogger” pass! Didn’t remember the 60’s either? Not many of us do “man”. Thanks again. J.
