Spot-On Video Parodies What It's Like Putting Up With Your MIL

Anyone with a mother-in-law will LOL at this hilarious video.

If you have a mother-in-law, this LOL video from Meredith Masony, AKA the mom behind the popular blog "That's Inappropriate," is for you.

In the just-over-a-minute-long clip, called "The Mother-In-Law," we are informed that what we are about to see is fictional. But c'mon. We all know dealing with a MIL can be, um, challenging.

"No, I'm not drinking in the middle of the day," Masony tells her MIL, whose phone call she was oh-so-thrilled to receive as she enjoyed a delicious-looking glass of white on the couch.

What follows is a hysterical conversation during which Masony lies to her MIL about just about everything. Because she is being criticized left and right! Her cooking isn't any good. But, oh yes, she's making meatballs right now (flash to the empty stove). Her baking sucks. She doesn't use the right laundry detergent. She can't remember to send permission slips back to school...oh wait, this one is true.

The funniest and most relatable part of the conversation is when Masony replies to her MIL about her husband, "Yup, his ex-girlfriend was really pretty." Ha, ha! What wife hasn't been dragged into that eye-rolling topic by the MIL?

To be honest, my own mother-in-law doesn't really criticize me, but well, she doesn't compliment me either. I'm kind of okay in her book, I think.

Oh well. At least my MIL drinks wine right along with me!

Can you relate to this video? And P.S., Meredith, we love you!
