Your Mama can irritate the dickens out of you. But as long as she's feeding you that good food that only Mama can fix, you wouldn't slap her. Find a suitable replacement, and let the Mama slappin' begin! The origin of this phrase traces its roots to the southern states of the U.S. When first coined it meant someone had just tasted something so delectible it caused them to be angry towards their mother for never creating food equally as tasty... angry enough to slap her.
When you try some new food that tastes so delicious it makes you wonder "why can't my mom cook this well?". This thought makes you so angry that you feel like slapping your mom for feeding you mediocre food.
Of course, this is usually meant as a joke or figure of speech. Most people love their mothers and would never do such a thing.
OK, I can accept that. But I still think is a lousy decision to name your product "Slap ya Mama" if you want to market to regions other than Cajun country.
quote:They've gotten some mileage out of the name, but it really is a great product. I would be more likely to buy it if it had another name. My 89 year-old mother hates the name and I wouldn't want her to see it in my kitchen.
The name is the reason the product is as popular as it is
