This was overheard in a conversation recently. It is a nice congruent conflation of “struck gold” and “hit the jackpot”, both meaning to become rich. Perhaps a little leprechaun and his pot o’ gold were in the speaker’s mind as well. A big thanks to Katie Hatfield for sharing this one.
“the gold pot” is truly one that “The Master” could have said!
