  1. As the group of assholes, we call it a Congress in the USA. For holes in general, I think we should use the collective name an "excavation" of holes or possibly an "emptiness" of holes. 

  2. I suggest it should be a vacuousness of holes. It has the advantage of being equally applicable to those who have been elected into our various governments.

    (I rather like Jim's 'excavation' idea)

  3. Try the sunken caves in Chinhoyi (previously Sinoia) in Zimbawe. It's where Mugabe's Forces have disposed of many of their opponents.

  4. Yesh (hic). The co-lec-tif noun of hol*hic*holes is, Holesh. Bu-bu-buuahteye haven't been ab-ab-bull to pronouncesit since I qui-qui-quit*urp*drinking. Now, if you'll ehhhxscuse me I must get back in there. There's ahhhhh*urp*vote coming*hic*up.
