    Here goes... Yo mama so ugly, the last time I saw something that looked like her, I pinned a tail on it. Yo mama so fat that she stepped on a scale and it said, "To be continued." Yo mama so short, her feet dangle off the curb. Yo mama so grumpy that they don't serve happy meals at the McDonald's where she works.
