Do you really want to know what a "piss pot" is???............
Take it from the experienced......we were "poor", but we did
have "a pot to piss in".......we didn't have indoor plumbing when
I was growing up (was already in the Air Force before we got
indoor plumbing.....had to carry all the water from a "spring"
which was located, usually not closer than probably two hundred
plus feet from the house...and, carried it in two, two and a half
gallon galvanized "water buckets") so we had to walk to an "outhouse",
you know, the one with the "moon" carved into the door and which was
also a couple hundred feet from the house. So, during the night, instead of
disturbing others in the house, if you had to go to the "toilet", as we
also called it, we just reached under the bed for the "piss pot" (of
course the real name for it is "Chamber Pot") and urinated into it and
it would then be thrown out the next day. Of course, we wouldn't refer to
it as a "piss pot" in front of "company"..............
Here's how it evolved through the centuries.......
I just ran across this and it pretty much explains it and with included photos....
