What does the phrase Pocket Rocket mean to you?

Aside from the card hand "pocket rockets" (2 aces), does this have any other meaning? im looking for your own interpretation, not a dictionary definition.

    It means you have a burner, a roscoe, a popper. In other words a gun.

    I take that phrase to refer to something that, though small, is powerful. It is particularly appropriate if the item is unexpectedly powerful.

    As an example, some years ago (in the 1960s and early 70s), the BMW 2002 was sometimes described as a "pocket rocket." this simply meant that it looks small and unimpressive, but it really moves (like a rocket).

    Henri Richard--of Montreal Canadiens Hockey fame--younger brother to Maurice 'The Rocket' Richard. He was called the Pocket because he was smaller than his brother. He played hockey for about 20 years between 1955 to 1975. I remember watching both of them on Hockey Night in Canada when I was a kid.

    Funny.....when I was going to high school, "pocket-rocket" was a slang term used to describe what a guy had in his pants when he had a hard-on.

    Isn't the "pocket rocket" a name of a vibrator?
