Holey, holey, holy

string bag

Today we have been doing similes, and at the end of the lesson, I packed my objects into my shopping bag. “Look at this bag” I said, “it is as holey as…”

“as holey as a football goal”

said the first child


“as holey as a fishing net”

said the second child


“as holy as God”

said the third child!


  1. No holes in that one! PC just complaining about how tired he is- and he really is. And I was trying to convince him that the holidays are coming- you're even taking the afternoon of Mattman's birthday off, I said, so that will put a hole in Holy week. Boom boom!

  2. LOL! Nice one! The English language has a lot to answer for sometimes!

  3. Oh dear :0 I often tell Stephen that I have thrown away his religious socks!
    PS no I don't darn any more :)

  4. Hee hee hee.

    But then...

    If Holy = set apart for a special purpose

    perhaps your bag could be holy afterall?!

    So, no-one came up with wholly? Maybe it's wholly holey and holy?!

    I must stop.

  5. Yup! and he holds us safe and secure - what an excellent answer!
