After a brief hiatus from the Arbitrary Friday List column, I have returned to speak candidly about something that effects us all: our mothers using Facebook.
The old stand-up joke is that they're out of touch and they butt-in on your personal life, but there's a lot more to it than that. Last year, the purpose of moms on Facebook was to play flash games and send you assy requests for things like chicken coops, pissing you off enough to do one of those ATTENTION EVERYONE I HAVE EVER KNOWN, PLEASE STOP SENDING ME GAME REQUESTS, I WILL STRANGLE YOU TO DEATH IN REAL LIFE. That subsided, and the new role of Facebook moms was to randomly share pictures and memes you might find printed on things at the Hallmark store, or, on a saucy day, Spencer's Gifts.
Below, I have cataloged and commented on the 10 such meme or photo shares from my own mother over the last 30 days. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. Let us know how your mom spends her day on Facebook in our comments section, or hell, just talk about babies taking naps, because that's apparently the only thing anybody on the Internet cares about anymore.
The joke: Smiling is great. Also, babies.
