Talk:potter

I don't really want to muddy waters by starting another RFV separate from the existing marijuana one, but I think the Biblical sense for "God" hardly has merit. It's just a metaphor used once in the Bible, right? Equinox 22:49, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

The citations clearly refers to #1 not #2. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:52, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
Let's come back and get it when the marijuana one is sorted out :) Equinox 22:53, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
Do we have the sense at clay meaning person or people? Mglovesfun (talk) 13:11, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Rfv-sense: noun meaning "a cannabis smoker". Plausible, but the first several pages of Usenet hits about "potters + smoking" are about makers of pots (ceramic wares). I suspect it belongs in a separate etymology section, if attested. ("Pot", slang for "cannabis" + Fugenelement/reduplicated "t" + "-er".) - -sche (discuss) 20:23, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Rfv-sense: "God, the creator". There are currently two quotations, both translations of the Old Testament, but they seem to be using the more common sense "One who makes pots and other ceramic wares." —Granger (talk · contribs) 23:27, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

I've only ever seen/heard it used as a clear metaphor rather than actually meaning "God." Andrew Sheedy (talk) 08:05, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
