Happy Memeingful Mother’s Day

Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 23085 – 1126

Here’s the haps:

Happy Mother’s Day wishes to all of you moms out there. Hopefully, a little humor to brighten an already nice morning. (Dads and kids, steal one or more of these and turn them into an email card for that important person you forgot until just now. You’re welcome.)

The restaurant chain, Outback Steakhouse, came out with this radio ad in, I think, 2010 which became an unforgettable earworm. I think it’s because whoever wrote it had an understanding of it.

No one ever loves you like your Mum, Mum.
Everything we owe, we owe to Mum, Mum. ‘We owe to Mum!’
Even when she whacks you on the bum, Mum.
Mum’s the word and so the word is Mum. ‘That’s me, Mum!’
‘Come on Bruce!’
For Mother’s Day a year is fine for some, Mum.
But we know our mother’s job is never done, Mum. ‘It’s never done!’
You will always be our number one, Mum.
Mum’s the word and so the word is Mum. ‘That’s me, Mum!’


  1. An appropriate post Herb. I remember all those motherly sayings from my childhood, and I survived them all. Getting your butt busted with a piece of tupperware made a lasting impression on me. I had the logo on my bottom for days. I sure miss my Mother, especially today.

  2. I love the top one. Our moms knew who was the boss, and it wasn’t we kids. And who’d a thunk it, but it turned out to be a way to raise decent, respectful people.

I like comments and try to respond to them all if I can:
