I Want to be a Mother-in-Law When I Grow Up

In a landmark case in UK , a desi woman filed a harrassment law suit against her mother-in-law for her bullying tactics. She won the case and got 35,000 pounds in damages! (That would be gazillions in dollars)

Wikipedia claims the stereotype that mother-in-laws are "obnoxios, overbearing and unattractive" has carried on since Roman times! This image is now pervasive and universal. There's even a website that lets people vent about their mother-in-laws:

It sounds like a lot fun. I can't wait to be one :-)
