"Fairly Odd Mother: Musings of a Slightly Off Southern Mom" is award-winning journalist Kelly Kazek's skewed and hilarious view of various aspects of life, from raising a daughter as a single mom to life in a small town to popular culture ...

"I felt I had a lot of wisdom to impart to my daughter, like "Never let a man see you put on control top panty hose (or for that matter, take them off. Someone could get hurt.)"
- from the column "Moms get dumber as teens age"

"The idea of drinking a bovine pee cola gives a whole new meaning to those old Peter Frampton lyrics, 'I'm in you, urine me.' At least I think that's how they went. Plus, it makes you give those Red Bull ingredients a second glance."
- from the column "Try an ice cold Cow-ca Cola"

"Guys, at this point have likely picked up on the more obvious (to guys) mystery in this whole incident:
Where does a naked woman put $40,000 in jewelry...?
(Pause while we all ponder this.)
...and if this man was paying $100 per hour to have a naked woman in his house, why wasn't he watching her? I imagine to some, this would seem wasteful."
- from the column "Nude maid strips man of self respect"
