There were plenty of cool moms before Amy Poehler played Mrs. George in Mean Girls. They may not have worn velour jumpsuits or made us mocktails, but what they lacked in pink coordinates they made up for in things like strange text messages. The truth is we love our moms because they're all kind of weird. And, there's may be no better way to illustrate that than the slew of mom raps available on YouTube.

"I pity the fool who doesn't treat his mother right!" (not an actual quote).
