I just had to look it up on Urban Dictionary myself to find the obscure drug reference. I’ve never heard of the phrase with any negative connations!

@gdotty:  Parks and rec fa life!  First of all, even if guests don’t get it, it makes enough sense that it is cute.  Second of all, UD has some crazy s***, and half of it sounds made up.  I would not go there for the definitive meaning of a word or phrase. Plus, I didn’t find “you got jammed” on UD, only “jammed,” which are two different things.  Do it!

Just ask yourself…What would Leslie do?

@gdotty:  stop getting her opinion! That’s my advice. I’ve never seen the show, but surely wouldn’t be offended.

I love Parks and Rec but for some reason that phrase isn’t ringing a bell. Regardless, I’m not sure anyone would associate it with a derogatory meaning. Hopefully you and your mom can work out a comprimise. Spread the love is actually pretty cute too, in my opinion.

@ceebree:  I thought it was a spaceballs reference! *faceplant*

I agree with your mum on this one. I think “spread the love.” is really cute and conveys the sentiment of your day really well.

@BeckyS0:  I am a fanatic of both Parks and Rec and Spaceballs, and I definitely thought of Spaceballs first!! 🙂

I think a good compromise would be the jam and whatever you want to put on the jars. You can explain to her that most of your friend will get the joke.
