Boys engaged in this kind of play more than girls

did, and when the verbal deuling was friendly, the insults were hyperbolic,


nonsensical (yo mama wears combat boots).

When I was growing up "Yo mama wears army boots" (in Ohio it was army boots

rather than combat boots) meant two things. Either your mother was gay, or

you were dirt poor appalachian white trash because your mama was wearing

secondhand store disgarded army boots (just like the ones Granny in the

Beverly Hillbillies wore).
