Heartbreak is a touchy subject and not often the kind which warrants laughter.

But try telling that to a Mzansi mother, whose son's dismay over being dumped by his girlfriend tickled her funniest funny bone.

Mom finds humour in son's relationship heartbreak

A TikTok user, @that.phumi_24, captured the rip-roaring scenes and invited her large following on the video-sharing platform to share in the laughter.

She captioned it:

"Abazali (parents)?"

A description in the clip reads:

"POV: Your mom warned you ka mjolo (about dating)."

At the start of the one-minute-two-second clip, the woman is haunching as she cackles uncontrollably.

The mother continues her hysterical laughter as she glances over to her son at the foot of the person filming's bed.

She collapses on the bed and playfully tugs and grabs onto the boy on his left arm with her hand several times — all still while she guffaws.

The victim of the bad joke gives a faint smile while he is on his phone.

A younger woman's voice, likely his sister, is heard as she narrates the funny situation.

She says, in a mixture of vernacular and English:

"Bamlahile, mama, uJunior. Wena uyahleka.
"Uyam'bona uDepressed; intliziyo incane.
"Bathe, it's not you, it's me. Bathe, I found someone better."

TikTok users share in the laughter
