Say, what?


Thursday, August 02, 2007


A Sicilian mother cut off her son's allowance and took away his house keys after she claimed he misbehaved by not keeping her informed of where he was going.

Mom also complained that her son doesn't respect her and is never happy with the food she makes.

To "convince this blockhead" to behave properly, she hauled his butt to the police station for authorities to straighten him out.

Now, I understand that it's important to train children to respect their mothers. But do you think this mom just might be fighting a losing battle?

Her son, after all, is (yikes!) 61.

Not for nothing but: (some) "Mothers are like that, yeah they are!"

Hey Bon Giorno everybody!
At 61 years old,it's time for sonny boy to get a life. Mommy changed his diapers once...soon she'll have to start again unless that it is he changes her's first.
Maybe he is some sort of hood who never changed his ways.Maybe he is a "capo di tutti fruiti".
Either way,it's a bizarre life for them two.
As for the Hillary nut cracker...I'll wait for the Bill Clinton cigar cutter.

What in the world is the son doing still living with his mama?? Pathetic!!! Obviously these two have some serious issues. Some mothers suffocate their sons and never let go of controlling them. The effect of this???? Either 1) Sonny boy never grows up and relies on mama for everything in life (very unhealthy but it makes mama happy in some bizarre "need to control and be his center of the universe way")OR 2) Sonny boy disowns mama and lives with lots of resentment towards her (this makes mama very UNhappy, but it's probably the healthiest thing for sonny boy. Ha! Ha!

In the original story, it said it was very common in Sicily for sons to live with their mothers until they are well past 30.

Anon 9:43 pm - you are very right. I know a couple and the husband has treated his own mother like the madonna and his own wife like dirt...and his mother is pushing 95!

I ordered a Hillary nutcracker and the bag of Hillary stamped nuts as a joke for my Dad (he detests both Hill and Bill) would've been funnier if the nuts were embossed with Bill's name, though... :} I don't know why I can't get the Almond Joy ditty out of my head: "Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't"...
