A bigger piece of the potPosted: March 31, 2014
I think this is a mash up of “bigger piece of the pie” (share of something) and “sweeten the pot” (make something more desirable). Pie and pot are three letter words starting with p, increasing the confusion. Also in poker the pot is the collection of money to be won, often being divided in card games so that one may get a “share” of the pot. Thanks to Martin Pietrucha who heard this in a presentation.
