‘Yo Mama’ Jokes Turned Into Card Game

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Wayans Brothers have taken the art of “yo mama” jokes and turned it into a card game.

The Topps trading card company has enlisted Marlon, Shawn and Keenan Ivory Wayans to write jokes for a card game based on “snaps” – jokes told at the expense of someone’s mother.

The card game, called “The Dozens,” is made up of 150 different numbered cards, each with a “yo mama” joke. Players win by besting each other with a higher numbered card.

Some of the mama jokes include: Yo mama’s breath is so stank, she gargles with 2000 Flushes./ Yo mama’s so broke she has to go to Kentucky Fried Chicken to lick other people’s fingers./ Yo mama’s so fat she has to pull down her pants to get into her pockets.

The Wayans Brothers say they took part in the verbal jousts as kids and “...want others to be able to enjoy today the laughter and good times we had when we were growing up.”

The cards will go on sale June 1.
