With Mother’s Day around the corner, Twitter users began to trend the hashtag #MomQuotes. Most of the time people wrote common phrases their moms said, with some of them grabbing quotes from iconic movies like “Mean Girls,” in which Amy Poehler plays Regina George’s “cool mom.” Mothers can sometimes seem like their from another planet and Twitterati took the opportunity to poke a little fun at their moms a few days before the big celebration.
The trend started when “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon suggested to his 12.6 million Twitter followers that they play a “hashtag game.” Fallon asked them to tweet a “funny, weird or embarrassing” thing someone’s mom said and promised that some would make it to his show. That was enough to set the Twitterverse ablaze with the #MomQuotes hashtag.
Mother’s Day 2014 is May 11, so anyone who hasn't gotten something for his or her mom, it’s time to get crackin'. But before anyone rushes to the store, take the time to check out some of the mom quotes Twitter users have shared. Maybe one of the messages below will appear on the "Tonight Show." Check them out:
