    Aside from the punctuation error, describing a name as being “potty mouthed” doesn’t make sense. The person who speaks the name has the potty mouth.

      You’re right. I hadn’t considered that, but it’s true. The only reaction I had to “potty mouth” was that I felt it was an extremely juvenile term, something more suitable to a third grader’s writing. After reading your comment, I read the article and the so-called potty-mouth name is “Holy Butt.” I’m still trying to figure out why the writer thinks that would only come out of a potty mouth.
