Toilet or gross-out humor (occasionally referred to as potty or crude humor) is the weakest type of humor. It is mainly used a lot in modern TV shows and movies, which is one of the problems: it is overused. While toilet humor isn't bad all the time, it can be detrimental to comedy and it ends up grossing out the audience most of the time, sometimes even more than the characters themselves who were part of it. Remember, despite the name, it doesn't necessarily have to refer to humor relating to toilets alone such as urine and feces. It can also apply to genitalia or other bodily functions such as vomit, mucus, earwax, saliva, lint, toe jam, flatulence, and belching.
