It sounds like something you would say when your mom finds the bong in your closet. No mom it's an interesting prehistoric tea pot.
It's a cadogan form teapot. I have seen many in Chinese porcelain. It's basically a puzzle pot or novelty. Has an inverse funnel system sealed inside to hold the water
What sort of archaeologist pours tap water into a 'pre-historic' artifact?
So this actually isn't a teapot. This is called an "aftabeh" which is used to wash your ass after you poop. Kinda like an old school bidet.

Can I gold coat it then rub it?
This was definitely made to fuck with guests.
