Asian Moms Are Funny

Wednesday, February 17, 2010 17:21 GMT

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Asian mothers say the darndest things.

That’s why Teresa Wu, along with her friend Serena Wu, feel the need to document the funny, mispronounced warbles their mothers say on

Others are getting in on the act too, submitting the silly stuff their own Asian mothers say.

For those not in the know, an “FOB” is a slang term for foreigner that means “fresh off the boat.”

However, Wu can’t help but use the term to describe her mother because of her hilarious, thickly accented musings on life.

Other Asian moms are just as funny.

For instance, after saying she hated black cod fish, one user’s mother yelled out, “You no like black cck?” at the dinner table.

Wu says, “It’s become the place to find solace in the fact that thousands of moms out there are as painfully nosy, unintentionally hilarious, and endearingly ‘fobby’ as yours.”
