Mother's Day Comedy Clip: "My Son Is Gay!"
As mama's big day approaches with all the charm of a lifelong umbilical cord, let's revisit this clip of comic John Roberts as a beleaguered matriarch with unexplained sideburns, trying to come to terms with the fact that her son is a big, old nelly poufter.
As Roberts repeats "My son is gay!" and rolls it around in his mouth and mind a million ways, what begins as a horror story ends as a defiant statement of pride--and finally, dinner.
Happy Mother's Day, mamas!
Love, yo Mama.
