Sheila Patterson tells TMZ ... her phone's been ringing off the hook since Steve posted a clip of her multiple, hysterical attempts to answer, "What's another way people say mother?"

The clip of Sheila trying to pass off previous answers by changing inflection or adding a Spanish accent has gone viral. She admits she cracked under the pressure of being in front of a live audience.

But as a longtime fan of the show, she insists she's seen much worse responses. We asked her to give us an example ... Sheila drew a blank.

Must be her thing.
