Happy Mother's Day

Incoming!  If your mother is anything like mine, she's enthralled with sending you (and 17 of her closest friends) l-o-n-g weirdly-formatted emails embedded with a joke, warning, call-to-action, homily or chicken-soup-for-the-soul message.  And, who can forget the tear-jerker chain letters that need to be shared with five people immediately?  What about those cute animal pictures with funny sayings?

Used by mothers everywhere as an affectionate method of staying in touch, oftentimes we will open and read these messages before anything else because - after all - it's our Mom and it could be important...

Just in time for Mother's Day, ad agency Mother New York created a website that contains a menu of email forwards – and lets you send them back to Mom, all day long.

Take a peek at this video and let us know in the comments if your mother enjoyed the bit of humor today from Mom Spam 

Love you, Mom!  Send this post to the 17 folks on your distribution list for a little extra good luck!  Happy Mother's Day!
