Mother’s Day Jokes To Send To Your Mom That Are Actually Funny

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and it probably doesn’t bear repeating — but just in case — your mom deserves to be celebrated. She is the literal reason you are here and that’s cause for some love, appreciation, and gratitude at least one day a year. You could always get her some nice and thoughtful Mother's Day gifts, send her a card, or give her a call if you aren’t spending the day together. (Honestly, a little solitude is a gift in itself.) Or you could give her the gift that keeps on giving: some funny Mother’s Day jokes that will make her laugh or at least give her something to post on Facebook.

Yes, even your sweet mom will enjoy a Mother's Day meme. Will she ask if you wrote the joke? Of course. Will she ask if you know the people in the picture? Obviously. Just bear with her. She literally taught you how to use a spoon. Lest you think she doesn’t have a sense of humor, allow me to remind you of such life chapters as “When You Were Learning How To Use A Toilet” and “Still Loving You Despite Your ‘Chicken Nuggets Only’ Phase.” Here are a list of jokes that’ll make your mom laugh, and if anyone needs a little laughter in their life, it’s your mom.
