We Call It… The Aristocrats!

Mother #1: Yeah, Thanksgiving is so crazy. I decided long ago not to travel; it’s too much with the kids.
Mother #2: I know. I went to California once with the kids, and it was insane!
Mother #1: We just have a nice, quiet dinner at home.
Mother #2: I know! Once, we had a pantsless Thanksgiving. We all sat around the table without any pants on and ate dinner. The boys were crawling on the table, it was great!
Mother #1: Yikes…

Dude #1: So you want a stripper that makes you feel important?
Dude #2: Man, I’ll settle for any woman that makes me feel important.
Dude #1: Then go fuck your mother.
Dude #2: True — fuck it, I’ll take the hottie with the shitty attitude. Pretty much describes all my girlfriends, anyway.
