Is it fair for my Mom to keep me grounded for something I said months ago? Here's what happened...?

Four months ago, before the coronavirus thing happened, my Mom and I took a plane trip back to San Diego where we live.

While on the airplane, the flight attendant asked me, "Would you like some nuts?"

I was trying to be funny so I laughed and told her, "No thanks. Would you like mine?"

I was JUST joking. Hell, even the flight attendant smiled and just went about her way.

However, my Mom was super mad and she took away all of my video games and T.V out of my room.

So my sisters get to play video games, but I'm still stuck with nothing.

It's been 4 months and I told her how sorry I was, but she's still not budging.

We're going through a coronavirus thing so I need something to do while I'm home.

Update:

Got my games back last night lol

    Just go through your mom's room and take them back. Her behavior is downright ridiculous and eye rolling. She needs to grow up. 1) She's holding a grudge over something that happened months ago. 2) I've been grounded for far less time for things way more serious than that. Hell, the most I've ever been grounded is probably 1 week, 2 weeks tops. I think I was only ever really grounded once or twice in my life when I was a kid.

    This made me burst out laughing.  That was brilliant!  Although you got b***s pulling that stunt in front of mum!

    You should just ask her how long you're grounded for - but be extra nice with tea and breakfast in bed and stuff.  

    The problem wasn't what you said, but the fact that you embarrassed your mother.  Other old people be thinking "who brought up that child".

    You'd be a legend to hang out with though.  Just don't be stupid to embarrass mum like that.

    You were 'very' rude, it was not a joke, kid!  In your post, I don't see what you have learned from that incident- you basically apologized because you wanted get back the games. Don't ever do again to others!

    Why was your mom displeased?I see nothing wrong with "What about MY nuts?"And what did she introduce to press upon you?
