Bury his body in the old sink hole Bury his body in the old sink hole

Bury his body in the old sink hole under cold November sky

Then damned if I wouldn’t go to church on Sunday

Damned if I wouldn’t go to church on Sunday

Damned if I wouldn’t go to church on Sunday

and look the Preacher in the eye.

It’s should come as no surprise that Florida leads the nation in assholes, but we also have a lock on sinkholes.

Seems that our limestone substrate makes for a fascinating array of holes in the ground.

It’s good to be on top. Unless you fall in, in which case I recommend falling into a vulva-shaped one to preserve your masculine image, like the fellow above.

I started researching sinkholes for a story idea I’ve toyed around with for a while. These voids in the terra firma look like they’re waiting to be filled with my creative juices. Okay, okay, I’ll try to calm myself.

Fascinating. No, really. Of course, the sinkholes in my story are created by a race of subterranean aliens, percolating through the porous limestone aquifers, reconstituting here and there in the form of… well, don’t want to give the “hole thing” away, do we? They do have a taste for livestock, however.

Ouch.
