When I attended high school one of the more popular lunch time activities consisted of assembling into small groups and playing a game which involved making as many ridiculous statements about your opponent's mother as you could.
Everyone is familiar with "Yo mama" jokes, and they reached such a height of popularity that MTV actually made a show which turned the game of trading maternal insults into a contest.
