When I think about this, I think of the Joker's version of an open mouth. No openings.

Con

I think I can argue both sides of the argument but can I clarify which one I'm on.

Do what you think you must. I'm not really the debater type anyways, I just like to bring up new ideas.

A mouth can only ever be open. You can't have a closed mouth. You can have a covered mouth or a blocked mouth, but a closed mouth ceases to be a mouth to anything. A mouth that is cut open is a mouth that is more open. A mouth that is closed is not a mouth. It needs to be named anew.
