Happy Not So Happy Mother’s Day!!!

milfs and mothers day

It’s Mother’s Day! Or it was Mother’s Day. I surprisingly found out a bunch of random and dark information off of National Geographic article by Brian Handwerk while researching how to correctly spell M-Day.

Also, a fun fact, this year marks the 101st birthday for this Hallmark holiday.

If you read Handwerk’s article then you will find out that this holiday is much more than afternoon brunch in the Marina, over-priced flowers and posting an Instagram picture of you and yo momma.

The roots of M-Day started in the 1850s when Ann Reeves Jarvis organized a Mother’s Day festival . . . I mean workshop (LOL MILF Festivals) . . . to “improve sanitary conditions and try to lower infant mortality by fighting disease and curbing milk contamination.” This army of mothers also tended to the wounded from both sides of the U.S. Civil War.

After Jarvis’s death, her daughter Ann Jarvis (same name) created Mother’s Day in 1908 to honor her deceased mother. The reason why Jarvis decided the name should be “Mother’s Day” instead of “Mothers’ Day” is because today is the day to celebrate “the best mother you’ve ever known,” this day is not to celebrate all mothers. Let’s face it, some moms can be b*tches.

The sad part about the Jarvis story is that she spent most of her life trying to fight the commercialism of Mother’s Day. Her intimate day to love her mother was rapidly stolen from her. The American capitalists saw that there was money to be made and transformed M-Day into what we now as overpriced flowers and a cheap reason to bring your mom to a bar for a free shot. Well not my mom- she’s Asian so she doesn’t drink. Alcoholism only runs in the boy’s side of my family (;P)

With Americans spending about $19.9 billion a year on M-Day and reports saying that M-Day is the most popular day for dinning out, it makes me a little sad that Jarvis made no money from this. She was obviously not successful in her battle against the evils of the mainstream and commercialism.

Instead of capitalizing on the financial success of her holiday, she took the high road and did not give in to greed. She never had children of her own so it’s tragic to see her one creation taken from her and reshaped into something she hated in front of her very eyes.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed Mother’s Day. I almost forgot to call my mom yesterday. She would have been a sad panda . . . I’m a bad Asian. So next year remember it’s about showing your mother how much you love her, and not about expensive gifts. However, if your mom does expect an expensive gift then she doesn’t love you and is only using you so you need to break up with her and get a new mom who will love you unconditionally.

Keep up the good work moms of the world. And you bad moms out there, tisk tisk.

Till next time, Sype.

Random Mothers Day Humor

Posted on

Friend: Hey Airec, did you call your mother today?

Me: No I didnt.

Friend: Why not!?!

Me: Because it’s Sunday and I’m too broke to buy a phone card to call my mother in China.

Friend: Aw, I’m sorry.

Me: I know, I wish there was some way I could reach her and tell her how much I love her.

Friend: I wish that there was more that I could do to help.

Me: Actually, before I continue this on even further, I just wanna say I’m just kidding around.

Friend: What?!? Pish, I should have known. Phone cards aren’t even that expensive.

Me: Haha, actually another thing; I’m not even Chinese.

Friend: You’re an asshole.

I should have posted this like dayssss ago. But it was a little Mothers Day humor for y’all. I take any chance I get to trick my unknowing friends that I’m one of the vast majority of Asian decent. It’s always fun to be a little tricky (;P)

I would also like to thank my mother, Bo, for being there and supporting me through college and life. I know if it wasn’t for her, and of course my ‘Asian father,’ I would not be where I am now.

So THANK YOU for SPAWNING me mom. If it wasn’t for you the world would not know of Airec Syprasert.

Here is a picture of my family at Thanksgivings. My mother is the beautiful woman in the middle square, double fisting like a fucking champ. Like mother like son right.
