Since we've gone a bit to the humorous side of things (what a surprise....not), let me just say that "World's greatest Potter" gave me a great idea for a business name:  "World's slowest Potter".

I saw a potter at a show who went by the Worlds greatest Potter-make checks out to the worlds greatest Potter the sign said.
I could only get about 20 feet from booth as his ego was about that large. He now goes my another name for his business.
truse story on the name part.

That was George E. Ohr, right?  ;)

But, Ohr really was a Master Potter, don't you think? With all the criteria we can agree on? An exception, though, like Cellini, who also just knew he was a Master - their bragging rankles, but their skills can't be denied.
