Yo Mama joke

Looking at 3,500 years ago, six riddles found on an ancient tablet in Iraq could well have been quite the howlers — and may even contain the oldest “Yo Mama” joke known to man.

The cuneiform chucklers, believed to be written by a Babylonian student circa 1,500 B.C., were carved on a damaged tablet, discovered in 1976 by an archaeologist, J.J. van Dijk.

The riddles’ subject matter is earthy – sex, beer, and, of course, humor at the expense of mom.
