Macy’s department store has been mentioned in a “yo mama” insult joke:
“Yo mama is so stupid that when she walks by the YMCA she says, ‘hey look, they spelled MACY’s wrong.’”
The joke has been cited in print since at least 1998.
Macy’s, originally R. H. Macy & Co. (stylized as macy’s), is a mid-range chain of department stores owned by American corporation Macy’s, Inc. It is one of two divisions owned by the company, with the other being Bloomingdale’s. As of January 2014, the Macy’s division operates 789 department store locations in the continental United States, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Guam, including the prominent Herald Square flagship location in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.
