mom's spaghetti
To choke in a pressure situation. To fail to deliver on expectations when it becomes time to perform, often due to nervousness or lack of experience.

Taken from the lyrics of the song "Lose Yourself" by Eminem off the "8 Mile" movie soundtrack. In the movie, the main character Bunny Rabbit, played by Eminem, becomes nervous and chokes in an early rap battle competition. As retold in the lyrics of the song: "...his palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy, there's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti."

JoeZ often boasts about his poetic prowess, but when it comes to performing in front of an audience he's always mom's spaghetti.

Originally from "Lose Yourself" by Eminem. "Mom's spaghetti" is used at the end of a long speech or explanation.
Steve: "We need to grow as people in order to truly grow as a society. From time and time again, we have failed to provide the basic needs to human beings and because so, there are many that die preventable deaths. One day we will outgrow this trend and become truly divine creatures; mom's spaghetti."
