Thanks to my friend Beryl for this homage to mothers which has been doing the comedy e-mail circuit:

My mother taught me religion: “You’d better pray that will come out of the carpet.”

She taught me logic: “Because I said so, that’s why.”

More logic: “If you fall off that swing and break your neck, don’t come running to me.

Irony: “Keep crying, and I’ll give you something to cry about.”

The science of osmosis: “Shut your mouth and eat your supper.

Weather: “This room of yours looks as if it’s been hit by a hurricane.”

Exaggeration: “If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a million times.”

She taught me about anticipation: “Just wait ‘til I get you home.”

Physiology: “If you keep pulling that face, you’ll stay like that.”

Genetics: “You’re getting just like your father.”

Healthy eating: “It’ll put hairs on your chest.”

Hypocrisy: “Don’t do as I do; do as I say.”

(I added that last one, myself)
