Thursday Feel Good Post: Twittering Yo Momma

So it’s Thursday (thank God) once again and I’m trying to start a tradition on the Black Iris where the goal is to end the weekday with a smile on your face because I read somewhere that’s supposed to put people in a good mood for the weekend and I’ve always had a pro-weekend agenda. Hence, the following post isn’t any of the lengthy, dry political rambles commonly found on the Black Iris, but all the humor will be lost if you’re not up-to-date with the happenings of the US Presidential elections.

I haven’t “played the dozens” (commonly known as a “Yo Momma Fight”) since I was a kid, but blogger Anil Dash started a Twitter-based meme that’s politically-themed to the US elections and the global financial crisis. It was picked up by other Twitter peeps and is now even on Boing Boing with users throwing in their own suggestions. The meme has been going for the past 30 hours or so (isn’t technology wonderful?). Here are some of the ones that left me in stitches:
