366: Your Mom
Title text: 'It's either 'your mom' jokes or me' 'Then I, like so many men before me, must reluctantly choose your mom.'
"Your mom" jokes are frequently used by children and pre-teens (perhaps reaching their peak in middle school), and are seen by adults as being a sign of immaturity, especially when used with great regularity. For examples of "your mom" jokes see 320: 28-Hour Day.
"That's what she said" is a supposedly funny retort to an innocent looking sentence that makes that sentence look sexual in nature. It gained its most recent surge of popularity as Michael Scott's catchphrase on the television series The Office. For a not very typical example see 436: How it Happened. British readers will probably know the similar expression "Said the actress to the bishop".
We enter in the middle of a conversation between Cueball and Megan about the status of their relationship. Megan has apparently just said that Cueball turns every conversation into a "your mom" joke and it's becoming unbearable. Cueball immediately turns that sentence into a "that's what she said" joke about her mom, and that seems to be the last straw.
Megan simply replies "Yes. Yes, it is." to her own previous statement.
The title text takes the joke a little further, suggesting that Megan's mother has had many reluctant lovers in the past.
- Cueball: Well, your MOM turns every conversation into a "your mom" joke and it's becoming unbearable.
- Megan: I'm serious; I can't take this anymore. I'm leaving.
- Cueball: ...That's what SHE said!
- Megan: Yes. Yes, it is.
