While writing up my song lyrics a few weeks back I, for some reason, starting laughing at the term potty mouth.
Seriously, who calls it a potty? A potty is for toddlers to learn to sit on to do a “number 2”. Bahahaha. What it should be called for adults is what adults call it, toilet.
I know it doesn’t sound as “polite”, lol, but it’s probably not meant to in the first place. Potty is just a weird word to use for swearing and toilet is used for “toilet humour” which is also a ridiculous phrase.
But I kept laughing because with the way my brain works it kept going and rolling the conversation I was having with myself on, and it went from calling it potty mouth to toilet mouth and then came ‘because when it backs up, shit comes out’.
Which is true, isn’t it, lol. So that’s a new phrase for me.
‘Toilet mouth. Because when it backs up, shit comes out.’
Below are two sets of song lyrics I wrote about celebrities (I’m no Eminem) way back in 1992 and 1993, still slightly relevant, especially OVEREXPOSED and a certain family that are never out of the rag mags.
