Happy Valentine’s Day POTTY People!
If no one has told you already today… We LOVE You!
That’s why we decided to make this week’s blog, dedicated to Valentine’s Day and all things LOVE!
We at POTTYMINTS have always believed that “true love” is that person you call… when the toilet paper ran out…
That outreached hand, peaking through the bathroom door… holding out a new, pristine, roll of toilet paper…
That’s true love…or so we thought
For this week’s Main Story, we go to the Monmouth County Courthouse in New Jersey - where we meet a Brian and Maria Schulz…who exchanged their vows… the courthouse bathroom.
You see… it was set to be a typical courthouse wedding…
When all of the sudden, the groom, Brian gets a call from his Mom – who says she is having trouble breathing
“She really couldn’t talk at all. I could just tell something was wrong, so I just got up and I ran and started looking for her.”
Brian, leaving behind his fiancé, Maria, and his soon to be Mother-In law wondering where he went…
“They started to get a little worried that maybe I got cold feet and ran away!” Brian said.
Brian found his mother in the bathroom of the courthouse
While Monmouth County Sheriff’s officers tended to Brian’s mom and gave her oxygen, one of the cops, Leonard Maxfield, reminded Brian what he was in the courthouse to do.
“Did you tell the judge what was going on?” Maxfield asked, according to Brian.
Maxfield proposed the bathroom nuptials to the judge.
“The couple was clearly upset about the mom and having to postpone their wedding in which they would have to wait another 45 days for a new marriage license to be processed,” Cynthia Scott, the public-information officer for the county sheriff’s office, wrote on Facebook.
“Since the sheriff’s officers were concerned about the mom and did not want her moving from the ladies’ room, S/O [Sheriff’s Officer] Leonard Maxfield kicked his thinking into high gear, why not get married in the ladies’ room?”
Judge Katie Gummer agreed to the venue change and presided over the unusual ceremony.
With a tampon dispenser and a trash can beside them, Maria and Brian Schulz sealed their marriage with a passionate kiss.
Now that… is TRUE LOVE!
Let’s keep this love fest going… with this week’s POTTY PICKS!

This week’s Bathroom Moment of the Week comes to us courtesy of the Netflix show, “Jailbirds”
The Netflix show is based out of the Sacramento County Jail, where they try and show a glimpse into living behind Jail Cell bars.
While we have seen some incredible ingenuity and creativity from prison inmates before, this example is pretty incredible!
As we all know, life in prison can be difficult, and very isolating, so inmates use “the bowl”… as the unofficial communications network.
You have to see this…
And you thought “Sexting” was filthy…
Thank you all for joining us for this week’s Valentines Edition of Potty Time with POTTYMINTS!
