Monogram my Mom?

Help me monogram Mom's pajamas in a hilarious fashion.

Mom's birthday is nigh. Last year I ordered/personalized for her two cat collars that read "Fo Shizzle My Nizzle," and "Rollin' In My 5.0." She loved them, for she is strange.

This year I'm going to send her some "really cute" PJs, but before checking out online I noticed that this specific outfit can be monogrammed.


Hehehehehehe!


I need your help in coming up with 1 line, 12 characters maximum. The line shouldn't make sense with the style of the PJs.

My current examples are:
"I HATE MANGO"
"RICO SUAVE"

Thanks for the help!

Or something along those lines, considering the adorable girlishness of the PJs

Does she like the Cat Massage video? You might consider:

On phone with Mom, had to share this thread with her. She's crying laughing and reading all of them out loud. Maybe this is the actual present! :)

Keep 'em coming, but she's leaning toward POTATO HEAD.

Is this the place where I get to tell the story about my mom and her monogrammed pajamas?

Okay!

My mother is a nice Southern lady. A nice, Christian, no-sex-until-marriage kind of Southern lady. One day, during her engagement (she was in Alabama and my father, her then-fiance, was in Cincinnati at the time), she went to the lingerie department at the local department store to get a nightgown, and discovered some really cute pajamas, white with navy blue polka dots. She thought they were the bees knees. But what really made them perfect was the incredible coincidence that they had her initials, GIB, embroidered in Navy blue thread just over the breast pocket—it seemed as though they were made for her. She took them off the rack, chatted with the saleslady about the impending wedding as her purchase was rung up, and took them home.

It wasn't until months later, after the wedding, that my father pointed out the reason for the pajamas' serendipitous monogram: underneath the initials, in thread that was the same color as the pajamas' white fabric, was the inscription: "GOOD IN BED."

So, my answer to your question: whatever you do, do it in thread that's the same color as the pajamas themselves. It'll make whatever joke you end up using about ten times funnier.

I could go on and on with phrases that don't make any damn sense.

Alternate suggestion: take a common phrase that's hilarious in its self, but longer than 12 characters, and cut it short. Like:
