    That's no lady, that's my Mom.

    What does he mean by the next sentence?
    That's no lady, that's my Mom.

    A: Who's that lady yelling at the ref?
    B: That's no lady, that's my Mom.

    The joke is that he's saying his mother is not a lady. 'Lady' means a higher-class, or well-mannered woman.

    It's a poor plagiarism of a much older (and funnier) joke, that goes:

    A: Who's that lady I saw you with last night?
    B: That was no lady. That was my wife.

    (The same joke could be made about a husband, using 'gentleman').
