“Yo mama is so ugly, she went into a haunted house and came out with a paycheck”

A popular “yo mama” insult “so ugly” joke is popular at Halloween:

“Yo mama is so ugly, she went into a haunted house and came out with a job application.”

Later versions have her coming out with a paycheck. The joke was told by American comedian George Wallace in 1993.


3 June 1993, Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN), C.J. column, pg. 3B, cols. 2-3:
(George—ed.) Wallace, who was working at St. Paul’s Comedy Gallery, is the King of the Mother Jokes, and McCloney never should have gotten into the subject with him. “He said my mama was ‘so ugly she went into a haunted house and when she got ready to leave they gave her an application to work there,’” said McCloney.

13 October 1993, St. Petersburg (FL) Times, “Connections” by Kanika Jelks and Leon M. Tucker, pg. 5D, col. 1:
Usually cracking starts off with a couple of harmless cracks like, “Your mama’s so old, she owes Moses a dollar,” or “Your mama’s so ugly, she walked into a haunted house and came out with an application.”

12 May 1994, Orlando (FL) Sentinel, “Super Snaps,” pg. I-11:
Your mother’s so ugly, she went into a haunted house and came out with a job application.
