Not a question but when I was planning Finland, I mentioned to my sister I was looking for a compression shirt to bind my breasts. Her reaction was "that's insane."

Hmm, here are the most recent "jokes" my mothers been cracking, but honestly, she's completely serious.

I was meeting with a college dean and asked her what she thought would be appropriate to wear, her response, "Wear jeans, and that black lacy thing, it'll look nice but not slutty..*awkward pause*...I mean you know how you get.."

She also loves to joke about how I should marry-or at the very least start dating a good (male) friend who happens to come from an extremely wealthy family, why? "Because someone like you needs a 'provider'" My favorite part, is how she brings this up well my friend is there >.<

oh how she thinks she's funny...

I was watching iCarly with my mom and this is what happened.
Mom: A guy like Spencer would be perfect for you.
Me: Well...I think he's cute, but why Spencer?
Mom: He's artistic, you know, he does cooky things, he's weird like you. I I just think you should be with someone like that.
Me: Okay.

A lot of things they say are pretty funny, but you guys don't know me personally so you wouldn't really get the joke. I figured you guys might enjoy the one I posted though, I tried.

Halfway finishing Seychelles cosplay, i decided to try it on:
Me: How do i look?
Mom: I dont get why you're trying to be Dorothy
I just laughed.
My mom scares me when she thinks high school girls and little children are "too cute". I'm beginning to think she's Spain underneath her motherly self O_o

I had an interesting conversation with my dad too:
Me: What are vital regions? (i knew what it was, i just wanted to test him)
Dad: A piece of land from a country that is very precious and fertile.
Me: *laughs* YES.VERY fertile 8D SO is Florida America's vital regions?
Dad: Weeeeeell... yah.... i think it's fertile enough
I almost died laughing right about here.

I was on the phone to my mum during Kitacon, and this happened.

Mum: "So you're having a good time it see-"
Stranger: "GARY MOTHER****ING OAK, I CAN'T IGNORE YOUR GIRTH!"
Me: *bursts into hysterical laughter*
Mum: "...What the hell just happened? Was that to you?!"

Oh god, such a brilliant and beautiful moment :')

When I was still into Ouran High School Host Club, I decided for whatever reason to show my mom. Every now and then, roses/sparkles would pop up behind the characters as per standard anime fare. One of the first things she asked was;
"... Why are there roses everywhere?"
The worst part was, I didn't know how to explain. I hate watching anime with people who don't understand it. It's awkward having to explain some of the things that seem weird to people who aren't used to it. Like random sparkles and roses surrounding bishies. >.>

I'm married, so my mother doesn't have to put up with my anime fandom at all, especially since it occurred late in life for me. :-) But she can say some pretty funny things. Even though she's been in this country since she was 13 (she's Polish, so the question I often get is where her accent is from) and her English is fairly good, she still sometimes gets her English phrases mixed up.

1) Soon after I told everyone I was pregnant with my son, I'm online talking with my mother. I have a history of depression, so the idea of me having post partum depression was a concern at the time. So as I was talking online with her, she messages me, "Did you ask the doctor about post-mortem depression?" I started cracking up laughing, and typed back, "I think you mean post-partum. Post-mortem would be after I was dead!"

2) I was in a restaurant with my mother and her husband at the time, and me and my husband. The waitress, who was just lovably flaky to begin with that night, was taking all of our orders. She came to my mother, who ordered prime rib. The waitress asked her how she wanted it done, and her response was, "Over easy." We paused for a minute, then all four of us couldn't stop laughing. Even the waitress was like, "I never heard THAT one before!" When she came to my husband, who ordered a steak, he jokingly told her he wanted it "boiled."

"I like boning!" -Mom, referring to corset boning.

"Gabbi, does 'otaku' mean gayness?"
"No, mom, that's 'yaoi'."

"When you first bought that Bioshock game, I thought it would be a lovely game about men that live in a nice little retro house underwater. Then I walked in to find you beating up that nice acrobat with a wrench! Why would you do that? He wasn't hurting anybody! I want you to go to counseling. If you would harm such a sweet little acrobat, you need professional help."
-Mom. Spider splicers. Enough said.

"Do we really need a wig, or can I just dye my hair pink?"
-Mom, upon my suggestion that she cosplays as Marluxia from KH:ReCOM

At her request, I explained "that's what she said" to my mother. Then she attempted to use it: "SHE SAID THAT!!!"

Can you tell how awesome my mother is? XD

Got a package in the mail; my parents know I mostly import nerdy things.

Dad: "Is that something Sheldon [from Big Bang Theory] would want?"

I opened it; it was Figma Black Gold Saw. I set it up later and pointed it out to my mom.

Mom: "You're not going to be wearing booty shorts like that, are you?" I think she was afraid I was going to make that costume LOL

Mom comes to visit and I'm in the bedroom putting my boots on so we can all go out to dinner. She wanders into the bedroom and looks at the artwork hanging above the bed.

"Tigress, what's that?"
"Hmm?" (Looking down as I lace up my boots.)
"That new one hanging on the right."
(Looks up at the pretty picture of Kefka being all creepy and possessive over a doll-like Terra.) "Kefka. I'm cosplaying him this year!" (Big grin.)
"But... but... that's so... I don't even..." (Slowly backs out of the room.) "Whatever makes you happy, dear..."

"You made THAT? By YOURSELF?"

After showing my mom my Eald'narche cosplay. Granted, it wasn't 100% complete yet and I still had a few more pieces to do, but the parts I DID have done impressed her. Mom didn't really have much faith in my sewing abilities (she didn't expect that sort of thing coming from a gamer/nerd/etc, and she could NEVER get me into the sewing room when I was younger even if she tried), so she was pretty surprised to see that XD.
