Hilarious #WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe Tweets That Everyone Can Appreciate
Moms are the ultimate cheerleaders, the people who are sometimes more invested in their kids' lives than the kids themselves are. They always, always call, and they've got advice for literally every stage of life. From the classic "always wear clean underwear" to dispensing wisdom about careers, relationships, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, they're usually good for practical, tried-and-true tips and tricks for trying really, really hard to succeed at life. But sometimes even our very sane, very sweet moms go rogue, and thus create the perfect content for hilarious #WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe tweets that everyone can appreciate.
Because in addition to being very sane, very sweet, and very loving, moms are whole, complicated people who just have to tell it like it is. For as many times as they tell us to mind our manners, they also sometimes have to remind us that we're a little doofy and we definitely don't know as much as we think we do, not matter how old we are. As the trending hashtag shows, sometimes that advice is a tad nonsensical, sometimes it's contradictory, and sometimes it's the total opposite of what you would ever expect a mom to say.
While no one wants to mindlessly do whatever their mom says no matter what, we usually discover sooner or later that she was right, and when we listen, we're glad we did. And because weirdness breeds more weirdness on the internet, the collection of strange advice Twitters have gotten from their moms reflects the whacky world we live in.
Luckily, heeding mom advice doesn't usually make us clones of them:
#WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe often starts with the basics, though, like be sure to keep a tidy room:
"Clean your room or you'll wind up like your older brother."— Danny Mac (@MacTwelve) August 26, 2016
"What older brother?"
And to just do you:
#WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe: "Be yourself, and people will love you."— Aiden Wolfe (@AidenWolfe) August 26, 2016
Yeah, doesn't work that way. Life requires constant calculated behavior.
There's no need to do it like everyone else, though:

eat your school,
don't do vegetables.#WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe
Moms tend to discourage crazy faces:
"don't make that face, it will freeze that way." #weirdadvicemymomgaveme— Holly Weber (@hollyc29) August 26, 2016
But they love curfews:
Most things that happen after midnight...shouldn't. So be home by 11. #WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe— Karen M. Smith (@kmstexas) August 26, 2016
Only bad things happen after midnight.— Nathan✖ (@nthall350) August 26, 2016
I've spent the last 20 years trying to experience them all.#WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe
But sometimes they know that if you are going to stay out late, it's better to be prepared:
#WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe Liquor before beer, never fear. Beer before liquor, never sicker. I was 10— funk all day (@funkygreens) August 26, 2016
Other times, their advice is a bit contradictory:
#WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe— WindyC (@Windsweptzariel) August 26, 2016
At 16: you're too young to get serious with a boy.
20: Still too young.
27: Why Aren't you married yet???!!!!
But they make up for it by showing off their uncanny mom-knack for predicting the future:
-spellcheck your tweets, son.— Danny Mac (@MacTwelve) August 26, 2016
-it's 1994 mom, what the hell are you talking about?
Or by being adorably oblivious:
Don't forget your bike pump...she said handing me a keg tap I left on my bed... #WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe— Daniel Dolores (@blackmagicninja) August 26, 2016
No two moms are the same, and their off-the-wall advice can vary a lot. Always eat your vegetables may be standard in the momosphere, but they can really, really surprise us beyond that. And with #WeirdAdviceMyMomGaveMe, the internet showed Thursday night that we'd be in very different places right now if we didn't have our moms to guide us through conundrums with their sometimes impossibly strange suggestions.
