Michelle Obama shared how her mom keeps her humble, and people are loving it.

This text exchange between the former First Lady and her mom is the best thing you'll see today.

People adore Michelle Obama because she is smart and dignified, yet incredibly down to earth. She's the kind of person you want to sit and chat with over coffee for hours (before begging her to take you home and adopt you, perhaps).

It's social media posts like this one that make people adore her realness—a quality she clearly gets from her mama. In an Instagram post captioned "When your mom doesn't think you're a 'real' celebrity...," Obama shared a text exchange with her mom after her surprise appearance at the Grammy Awards.

"I guess you were a hit at the Grammys," her mom texted with a smiley emoji.

"I'm sitting here with Valerie, and this text is so typically you," Obama responded. "Did you watch it?!"

"I saw it because Gracie called me," quipped her mom. (Translated from mom language, that's "Why did I have to find out from someone else that my own daughter was on a huge awards show, hmm?")

Then she threw the best Mom Shade ever: "Did you meet any of the real stars or did you run right after you were done."

Ouch, Mom. Ouch.

The woman who changed your diapers and endured your pre-teen nonsense gets to call your stardom into question—even when you're Michelle Obama.

Michelle Obama is one of the most recognized women on the planet. She was named the Most Admired Woman by a Gallup poll last year. She lived in the White House alongside the leader of the free world for eight years straight. There's a reason people went ballistic when she showed up on stage at the Grammys.

But Obama's mama's gonna mama, just like everyone else's. And she made sure her superstar daughter wasn't getting too full of herself by teasing her about not being a "real star."

Obama then tried to tell her mom that she had told her she was going to be on the show, but that got shut down real quick too. "No you did not," her mom texted. "I would have remembered that even though I don't remember much."

Classic mom move. Nothing Obama can say to that but, "I thought I told you."

But the best part was her mom's one word response to Obama saying that she was a "real star."

Gotta hand it to Michelle—she tried.

"And I am a real star...by the way..." she said to her mom. And then her mama responded with one glorious, show-stopping word:

"Yeah."

BWAAHAHHHAHAAAA!

This will never not be amazing. The post has more than 2 million likes and tens of thousands of comments of people who recognize their own mothers in these texts.

Nobody can put you in your place faster than your mama, and we love M.O. for sharing a glimpse into her hilariously real exchange with hers.

We all know that social media can be a cesspool of trolly negativity, but sometimes a story comes along that totally restores your faith in the whole thing. Enter the KFC proposal that started off being mocked and ended up with a swarm of support from individuals and companies who united to give the couple an experience to remember.

Facebook user Tae Spears shared the story with screenshots from Twitter, and the response has been overwhelming.

Madison Square Garden in New York City is known for having hosted some legendary performances. George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in '71, Billy Joel's 12 sellouts in '06, and Carmelo Anthony's 62 points in a 2014 victory against the Charlotte Bobcats, just to name a few.

But it's hard to imagine one person holding the legendary arena in the palm of their hand quite like Pete DuPré, better known as "Harmonica Pete," did on Veterans Day.

Many of us are too young to remember the hijacking of Pan Am Flight 73 of 1986, much less any details about it. But thanks to a viral Facebook post from Misfit History, some attention is being shed on an incredible heroine who saved many American lives in the standoff.

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.
