Seeing as Teapots are the puzzle of the day, i thought i'd give it a go,

I have one word which has several (2 or more) meanings. Each of the meanings is a teapot (first, second ...) You try to figure out the word with my Hints.

My first teapot is supporting

My second teapot is a bit of a turn on

My third teapot you'll get a kick out of

My fourth teapot contains a spare

hopefully its not too easy, i can always add hints later if required

I think your teapots are

boots.

My First Teapot is supporting

If you are wearing boots then they support your feet.

My second Teapot is a bit of a turn on

"Booting" is what your computer does when you turn it on.

My Third Teapot you'll get a kick out of

Like the last one, this is verb rather than noun: to boot something is to kick it.

My Fourth Teapot is Contains a spare

The boot of your car.

Discarded teapots:

The second could have been more literal -- some boots are designed to be sexy and some people are very much into that sort of thing. The third could have been a reference to football boots or to "kick boots". (I got #2 right on my own but needed some prodding from OP to get #3.)

  • $\begingroup$ I'm inclined to accept this as the answer as it got the closest with the clues, the second clue is your second meaning, but the third is incorrect, $\endgroup$ Sep 25 '18 at 15:05
  • $\begingroup$ I don't think either El-Guest or I will be offended whichever answer you accept. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @BladeWraith your puzzle, your choice on acceptance. I agree with Gareth, pick the answer that you envision to be closer to what you were looking for. $\endgroup$

Are you a

Boot?

My First Teapot is supporting

Could refer to a boot cast?

My second Teapot is a bit of a turn on

Maybe the musical Kinky Boots? (Or as noted by @Gareth McCaughan, booting up a computer)

My Third Teapot you'll get a kick out of

Kick out of, because it’s on your feet

My Fourth Teapot is Contains a spare

As in the spare tire in the trunk of a car

    $\begingroup$ Your answer was posted about 30 seconds before mine, but I decline to delete mine because mine has at least 30 seconds' worth of explanation that yours lacks :-). $\endgroup$
