As long as i'm posting stuff, who the hell names their food truck "Slap Yo Mama"? They showed up at the lunch food trucks in LB yesterday and it looked like they might have had some interesting food, but i just couldn't get over the name. I realize it's supposed to be some kind of Southern slang or something, but i just don't feel comfortably buying stuff from someone that's trivializing violence against women, even in "jest."

(Note that i generally don't have a problem with trivializing violence for the sake of a joke in general, it's just the fact that it's specifically targeted at women that bothers me for some reason.)

Apparently "Food so good you wanna slap yo mama" is actually a Southern saying.

American south, you so weird.

I believe the point of "slap yo mama" is that mother's have such high default respect that the notion of doing it is crazy. It's like saying, "Food so good, you'll swear you saw purple space men."
