Introduction So why "The Queen Mama?" Do I think I am a better Mama than you? Nah... I'm merely the sole provider of estrogen in this household, and have therefore crowned myself queen of it. Lucky for me I reign over very indulgent subjects. I practice benevolent rule over three young boys, whom I refer to as Bubba, Tater and Stinky Pete. I share my throne (though not my crown) with a fabulous husband who does everything he can to make my job easier...though nothing seems to help. Some time ago, I actually earned a paycheck for writing humor columns for a small newspaper. This is my outlet for that long-lost love.

Why does the taste of pennies remind you of losing a tooth?

Who goes around tasting pennies? You can choke on those, you know!
