Rename Mama Didn't Raise No Criminal

Vote UP to rename

Vote DOWN to keep the current name.

Reasons to rename:

  • Name may have contributed to the poor performance of the page
  • Sounds like something a sibling would say, but the trope is more often about the parents' (most often the mother's) reaction.
  • The use of a double negative as an emphatic positive is idiomatic American English and may be confusing.

Reasons to keep the current name:

  • It is a variant on the stock phrase often used when this trope is in play.
  • No solid evidence that it was the name that was broken.
