yo momma means: Here in the States is a custom, initially among Black Americans, called "doing the dozens." In sults were traded back and forth among the participants. Some of these insults involved "yo momma." e.g. Yo momma so ugly she stop a train. Yo momma ugly as a mud fence. Yo momma so ugly 'till its illegal. You so ugly, when you born the doctor slap yo momma. Yo momma so big she on both sides of the family. At times this is a game... a competition, to see who can make the last insult - or coin a new one. There is likely more to this than meets the eye, as I am not aware of all the social rules involved in "doing the dozens." I've only seen it in a good-natured context, or at least one that did not end in a fight. This practice is current in the US, and has been a part of black social culture fo r who knows how long... 50 years? More? As with much American slang and culture, it starts in the black community and sp reads to the rest of society. Though my own ignorance is encyclopedic, I thought I'd share this little nugget with you. (ed: someone weant to send us some of the thousands out there please?)
