Here's another "Yo Mama" joke for you guys, since you all did so well in the first one. If you need a definition of what a "Yo Mama" joke is, please check my solved puzzle, "A Mathematical Yo Mama Joke."

The joke in this puzzle trashes her intelligence. Can you figure it out?

P.S. I actually did come up with this one fifteen years ago.

yo mama's so stupid that when she went to the doctor and filled out the section that says "Sex: M/F" she wrote, "Tuesdays too!"

How come nobody has responded to my puzzle?? Is it no fun? =(

would this be an actual insult to intelligence or only if a word/phrase/abbreviation is given an alternate meaning (for instance, M/F is seen as male/female, except I used it as Monday/Wednesday)

blooper: I meant Monday/Friday =) Good question! The joke is based on a phrase that has a dual meaning.

In insulting her common sense, would it insult what should be common sense about other people? places? object uses? language usage (such as confusing "walk" and "don't walk" as street names)? celebrities?

Ok, so it insults her ability to understand the common use of some object.

Will this object fit (pick the smallest applicable) in my hand? In a bread box? In a house? In city? On a planet?

Would this item be used in the workplace? By everyone? In the kitchen? For cleaning purposes? For violence? For information gathering? For a specific vocation?

If I had regular hygienic standards, would I use this item daily? weekly? monthly? yearly?

Would i store it in a closet? Maybe, depends on how big the closet is. under the sink? in the garage? Most likely this.

If I had regular hygienic standards, would I use this item daily? weekly? Lol between weekly and monthly. monthly? yearly?

a dishwasher? No, just a regular washer. That's the main part of the joke. So far, you've got "Your mom is so stupid, she ____________ washer _________________."

Hmmm, I'm not thinking of anything witty off-hand. Does the wit involve something sounding like washing machine? the functionality of a washing machine? inverting washing and machine?

Alllright Howardwoman...lets see now...

Yo mama so stupid that when she puts the washer on permanent press she thinks she's on tv!

Yo mama so stupid that when I asked her why she was leaning against the washer she said she had it on permanent press!

Yo mama so stupid that she holds the permanent press button on the washer all the way til it's done washing!

That's all I got for now...show me your cards HW =D

Yo mama so stupid that she holds the permanent press button on the washer all the way til it's done washing! That's a good one! I wish that was the answer. You're very close, so I will spoil.

That's all I got for now...show me your cards HW =D Ok, here goes!

SPOILER: "Your mama's so stupid that she stuck her head in the washer because she read, 'Permanent Press'." Getting a permanent, and getting a press are two things that women do to their hair. Lol, very good guessing Usmcfink! From what I can see, you're on fire all over the site :-)
