A man posted a racist meme about immigrants on his Facebook page, starting a grotesque conversation in the comments thread (how does that always happen?) about how horrible immigrants are for the country. Then, the original poster’s mom chimed in with a revelation that she had been saving his whole life. It resulted in one of the best moments of Internet comeuppance we’ve ever seen.* She probably hadn’t been saving it for a moment like this one, but it couldn’t possibly have been better timed. See for yourself:
This is where mom jumped in:
Let this be a lesson to everybody: moms always win. And don’t be racist. But mainly the mom thing.
*Sometimes, stories like this seem too good to be real. But as a wise man may or may not have said, “Just because it didn’t happen doesn’t mean it’s not true” (in reference to a story that he dared L. Ron Hubbard to invent a religion, accidentally causing Scientology). This is a great example of that. It may well be too perfect, but even if it is, it’s so deviously conceived that it deserves reading.
