A defence mechanism in any slightly confrontational situation that can either be hilarious if used in an innovative way or make you look like a complete idiot (hence the phrase being common place with chavs and other nonentities).
# please a your mum joke can only be humourous if you use a mocking voice to show that you are merely taking the mick out of someone who would use sucha phrase and think it were hilarious (i.e. a nonentity)
reasonably good use of the phrase-
fred: 'my word it is hot today'
george: 'so was your mum last night after i roasted her over the table (alright, gigidy gigidy!)' #said in a mockingly moronic tone
bad use of the phrase-
Ben:'did i here you got an E in english language Lewis?'
Lewis: 'your mum (wayyyyyyyyy)' #said in a hereditary moronic tone
Humourous response to any question where a noun or noun-phrase is expected.

Q)I got Monopoly for Christmas"
A)Your mum got monopoly for Christmas"
a comeback to a question or insult. it is beautiful in its simplicity in that those two words will imply that the person's mother is fat, baggy, saggy, ugly and would probably simulate coitis with anything that got in her way. the only acceptable comebacks to a display of 'yourmummery' are shown below:
Cardy: Hey, what's that smell?
Daly: Your mum.
Cardy: Your face.
Daly: Your mum's face.
(on NO account bring 'your dad' into this - that's just rude.)
the best response to any question. can be used on numerous occasions including insulting someone, an answer to a question you dont know the answer for, just for the hell of it or in concjuntion with a sentence. NB: it is important to find out about the status of the other person mother i.e. if something upsetting happened to her etc so no true insult is caused. P.S. the only people who WILL get really insulted then are silly or stupid and dont understand it is a joke and think you are really out to insult their family...
Percy: S'cuse me you've got something on your face.

Pat: your mum
Percy: your face!
Randomer: Percy dude that was harsh!

Pat: I already told you i'm going with your mum!
Teacher: Percy stop talking in my lesson. Whats the answer to question 4?
Percy: Your mum?
Teacher: DETENTION! (note the inappropriate last use here where percy just doesnt know where to stop or how the phrase is used...note Pats master skills FYI she doesnt reall want to go to prom with percys mum duh!)
Possibly the greatest insult ever, due to the sheer randomness of it.
Bob: Do you have the time?
Fred: Your mum
Bob: Shut up, you fag. Why do you have to be such a fag all the time?
Fred: Your mum! Your mum, that's why!
Widespread, ineffective insult globally used by townies
and their offspring. Used as a counter insult by citizens with the I.Q of a bucket of sewage water (and the B.O of one)
Your mum originated, presumably, in the UK, which just adds another thing to the list that we'll be embarrased we thought of when we look back at this 10 years from now
Your mum is effectively dead towards punks
, and emos
, and ironically has been added to their arsenal of townie impressions.
However, mentioning 'your mum' to a townie
or similar missing link of the gene code may result in serious bodily harm, so if you do have to insult them, use words with more than 6 letters to leave them stunned and confused.
A: Fuck you
B: Fuck your mum
A: You're gay
B: Your mum's gay
"your mum" is the ultimate answer
what's six times nine? your mum! (i always thought there was something fundimentally wrong with your mum)
