Mother’s day

I got up early just to go into my youngest son’s bedroom and stare at him sternly.
“It is Mother’s day. It is a tradition. I want my present.”
His eyes opened, he sighed, and wham:
“Mother’s day is the invention of moralistic confused Capitalists who wanted to emphasize the mediocre role women played in the bourgeois households!”
“I want it.”
“Too bad.”

Later I phoned my second son.
“It is Mother’s day. It is a tradition. I want my present!”
“Is it May already? What did I get you last year?”
“Nothing.”
“So why alter a tradition?”

I tried son 3.
“Hallo, it is Mother’s day. It is a tradition. I want my present.”
“Who is this?”
