What is the meaning of this!?

Today might be a "series of short random thoughts/observation posts" day. Because I'm in that kind of mood.

I never heard the phrase, "the pot calling the kettle black" until somewhat recently. Since then, I've been hearing it everywhere. What the fuck does it mean? I have a lot of pots and kettles in my house, and none of them are black. Nor do they call each other black. And what's wrong with being black, you racist bastards?

LoL.... that's when you call something out on being/doing something that you are/are doing too. Yes, it is a funny saying.

I'm sure you already know (although if you didn't I doubt km's explanation would have helped you understand it at all).

basically means hypocrite.

Sorry/I apologize if my use of forward slashes may have/totally confused/bewildered you/anyone.

L, you know me well enough to know that was the most polite I could've said it. =P

Because in 'the day' when the term was coined, pots and kettles were cast-iron
