Mother in laws have had it pretty rough over the years, the butt of countless jokes and the subject of less than flattering stereotypes about them being intrusive, overbearing and quite frankly, mean.
Luckily however, like most stereotypes this one is dead wrong. Mothers in law come in all shapes and sizes but at the end of it all what they really want is the best for their loved ones.
We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of mothers in law at their best. Funny, clever, kind, naughty, naïve or just a bit wrong, this list is all kinds of hilarious. Scroll down to check it out and tell us your mother in law stories in the comments!
