John Roberts is the dude who created one of my favorite recurring YouTube skits: The Jersey/Long Island Mom. (Check out his other classics The Christmas Tree and The Phone Call.) Maybe it's just a regional thing, but many aspects of his "mom" character resemble those of my mom, her sisters, and other women I've grown up around (replete with glasses upon glasses of white wine, compulsive cleaning, a wardrobe of workout gear, and talking on the phone while on the toilet). Anyway, here's an early Happy Mother's Day to all those moms out there, including mine, whose tendencies, while mortifying when I was younger, are nothing short of hilarious now.
