Salt whaaa?

So  recently a couple of friends mentioned salt cellars.  My first reaction was “what the hell is a salt cellar? ”  My second reaction was “I should forgo curiosity .”

Fuck me I decided to actually look it up:

Silly me, I would have called it a fucking dish, or a bowl, or something like a salt thingy.
