Each year for the last few years, we’ve been tracking down our favorite funny Mother’s Day cards. Of course humor is subjective, but I always try to stay away from the cards that reduce her to a laundress/cook/taxi driver. Also all the MILF jokes because…yeah. She’s your mom. Don’t be weird. Really, these are just the cards so funny I wish I had written them.
So kudos to these awesome writers and designers for making us smile just a little more than we already do this weekend with some fantastically funny Mother’s Day cards.
Warning, mild irreverence ahead, and one or two words you wouldn’t want your preschooler saying.
