Need some opinions please!
my mom said a neighbour would really want to make jam as a wedding favour, I accepted even tho we had an additional idea to get personalized beer koozies made.
I started looking up jam label ideas and me and my fiance thought it would be funny for it to say “You Got Jammed!” since we are both fans of the parks and rec tv show and it’s kind of a catchphrase on the show.
my mom thinks no one will get this and thinks its stupid then today, she looked it up on “urban dictionary”, found an illegible crass meaning and is now saying she will “not allow me” to use it And its disrespectful of our family and friends who made it.
I realize, not a huge deal, but I’m tired of bowing down to her. Shouldn’t our wedding be a reflection of us? Mom wants to use “spread the love” I was going to suggest a compromise of using both, but now I don’t think she’ll go for that either.
help is appreciated! Thanks 🙂

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.
