It was the great American philosopher William Smith who once famously said: “So to you, all the kids all across the land, there’s no need to argue, parents just don’t understand.” Words that ring as true now as when they were first uttered back in 1988.

And no one understands parents not understanding better than 19-year-old Dominic Licciardi, whose mother achieved peak mom in this Vine, becoming more mom than any mom previously known to science.

Yo, I never fucked Wayne, I never fucked Drake
On my life, man, fuck’s sake
If I did I’d Minaj wid’ him and let ‘em eat my ass like a cupcake

So croons Nicki Minaj on “Only,” a lascivious track Licciardi played in what we can only assume was a sweet attempt to enhance the mother-son bond through the beauty of shared experience.

But despite moms everywhere loving cupcakes, this lady just wasn’t feeling it. She rushes to turn off the music, which she no doubt later referred to as “noise”, and wound up doubling the mom factor by not being able to figure how technology works.

Luckily, nothing brings families together like virality, and Licciardi’s mother seems to have forgiven him.

As of this writing there has been no official statement from Minaj on the the white suburban mother’s reaction to her hit single.
