Thank God for my framily matriarch! Without her I couldn't have afforded a vacation this year!

I am thankful for my framily matriarch: Mother to all Misfit Children, she who shrinks when she's angry, buys Christmas decorations in July, grills a mean London broil, turns vegetarians into carnivores, cooks for all us with love and gives each and every one of us a place of home and sense of family regardless of our situation.

This dominant land walking sea cow is usually the most socially developed and least shy to do ridiculous things. It is important to identify the "Manatee Matriarch" when taunting a group of fat bitches, for the "Manatee Matriarch" is the most likely candidate to thump you to the ground, should she manage to catch you.
"Don't piss off that bitch, she's the manatee matriarch".
"Look at that heard of land walking sea cows! Led by the manatee matriarch".
