Poverty

If you don't even have a pot to piss in then couldn't you just use a restroom?

And let's say all you have is a pot to piss in, wouldn't it be better to still use the bathroom and save this pot for other things like making soup out of tin cans and newspapers, provided you could find those?

Unless "pot" in this case means toilet, like you don't even have a toilet to piss in, in which case I would suggest using a Le Creuset 2 3/4 qt. soup pot. They come in an array of colors and according to the web site, "each pot is shaped to promote the natural circulation of the ingredients while simmering, so soups and stews cook evenly." Imagine what it would do for your urine.

Also, you could toss your hay-pennies into this pot.

I read about this place last November when it first opened. It's in Taiwan, but weren't you looking for somewhere new to go this weekend?

I once was so poor. I didn't have a pot, nor a kettle. I think this is how the phrase started. One person was really poor, and living in his car. He was whining to another homeless guy who didn't have a car, and the second homeless guy told the first, "you think you are so poor?!? At least you can sleep in your car. As for me, I don't even have a pot to piss in." It's good to know that even homeless people can use well placed sarcasm to make a point.
