Take A Mulligan

Do you remember your Mother saying things like, "Put on clean underwear in case you're in an accident," or "if you're gonna cry, I'll really give you something to cry about." My Mom used to tell me, "Johnny, if you don't shape up, you're gonna end up in Independence." Hah, I've been here in Independence for well over 40 years. But what about Mothers of famous kids. Ever wondered what they said to their off-spring? Well, wonder no longer 'cuz it's all right here right in front of your nose.....

Paul Revere's Mother; "I don't care where you think you have to do young man. You have a mid-night curfew and that's final."

Mona Lisa's Mother: "Come on Mona, after all the money we spent on braces, that's the best smile you can give us?"

Christopher Columbus' Mother: "I don't care what you've discovered Chris, you still could have written."

Abraham Lincoln's Mother: "Again with that darn stovepipe hat, Abe? Can't you wear a baseball cap like the other kids?"

Batman's Mother: Yes Bruce, it's a really nice looking car but can you imagine what the insurance is gonna be?"

Goldilock's Mother: "What's this bill here for a busted chair from the Bear family Goldi? Do you know anything about this?"

Babe Ruth's Mother: "Babe, how many times have I told you-NO playing ball in the house. That's the third window you've broken this week."

Michelangelo's Mother: "Mike, I understand all kinds finger-paint on the walls from time to time, but do you realize how hard it is getting the ceiling clean?"

Humpty Dumpty's Mother: "Humpty, if I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times not to sit on that wall. But would you listen to me. NOOOOO."

Jonah's Mother: "Yea, yea Jonah, that's a really cute story, but you better tell me and tell me real soon where you've been for the last three days."

Thomas Edison's Mother; "Of course we're proud of you Tom for inventing the light bulb but please turn that light off and go to sleep."

Little Miss Muffet's Mother: "Well all I've got to say is you better get off your tuffet right now and start cleaning your room or there'll be no curds and whey for you."

Albert Einstein's Mother: "But Al, it's your senior picture. Please get a haircut and comb your hair nice for a change."

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOTHERS IN "TAMA NEWS-HERALD" LAND. And Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, Sue Sheda, who passed away in 1988.
