Bone Of Contention: Right On! Rhyton!

Back in the day people made ceramic drinking vessels based on their predecessors the animal horn, the shell. These folk were mainly European- the new clay vessels made to mimic are/were called RHYTONS. I am a ceramic geek- I like silly puns (I love words). I like slang and use words such a tubular and radical and nifty in all seriousness. I also say “Right On!” to people all the time, but what I am really saying is “Rhyton!”. Then I giggle afterwards. Some day I hope to encounter someone who gets the pun without me having to explain the geeky girlish giggles.
