Is there a collective noun for holes?
Anyhows, for your interest, education and edification here is a nice collection.
Kimberley Big Hole, South Africa
Apparently the largest ever hand-dug excavation in the world, this 1097 meter deep mine yielded over 3 tons of diamonds before being closed.
Glory Hole - Monticello Dam, California
A glory hole is used when a dam is at full capacity and water needs to be drained from the reservoir. It is the largest spillway of this type in the world and consumes 14,400 cubic feet of water every second.
Great Blue Hole, Belize
This incredible geographical phenomenon known as a blue hole is situated 60 miles off the mainland of Belize . There are numerous blue holes around the world, but none as stunning as this one.
This photo is of a sinkhole that occurred in Guatemala . The hole swallowed 2 dozen homes and killed at least 3 people.
SHIT HOLE, Dublin, Ireland
This hole swallows billions and billions of our Euro annually!
The money that falls into this hole is never heard from again by the Irish.
It is reported to be filled with at least 166 smaller holes called ‘assholes’.
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.
A Non-existence? A Void?
I really wanted to post a pic od David Cameron and title it Arse Hole!
The big hole swallows the billions of Euro.
Then emitted by the assholes as hot air and Bullshit.
Welcome, David [both to here and to the "blogging" world at large]!
If they even managed to produce flatulence from our Euro it would be something. As it is, it just vanishes into thin air. Or the pockets of the bankers?
Thanks for the welcome, Grandad.
You're welcome. Heh!
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)
Yup. I could live with that. It has the added advantage of confusing dyslexics?
You are welcome – glad it made a good post !!
Try the sunken caves in Chinhoyi (previously Sinoia) in Zimbawe. It's where Mugabe's Forces have disposed of many of their opponents.
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.
Get back on that wagon, man.
(hic)Can't. Can't stand all these fuh-fuh-blasted politicians sober*urp*.
A hole load of excresence empties the bowels of the body politic.
A Diarrhea of holes?
What a pain in the hole http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120713183323/gravityfalls/images/thumb/c/cc/S1e6_pain_hole.png/640px-S1e6_pain_hole.png
