Kill the Potter

Posted by W.F. on August 21, 2001

This is a strange one. It seems to be of the fortune cookie variety, and the following is the best I could scrape together. It seems to be a "quit fiddling it to death" sort of saying. Can anyone elucidate?

"It takes two men to make a perfect pot,
one to make the pot,
and one to kill the potter,
once the pot is perfect."
