A woman named Jess Marfisi from Burbank, California posted a question on Twitter over the weekend. Quote, “We had a riveting discussion about this at lunch, but I want to hear from all of you: Does a straw have one or two holes?”
And now, there’s a RAGING debate going on about the answer. Here are the best arguments we saw for both sides . . .
The argument for one hole, from Twitter user @c0conutcoke, quote, “Would you say a donut has two holes? No. A straw is just a long plastic donut.”
And the argument for two holes, from Twitter user @craig_shetterly, quote, “The straw is a small, manmade tunnel. There’s a hole to enter in, and a hole to exit. If a hole led to no other point of egress, then it’s a pit, or a bag, etc.” (It looks like he deleted his tweet late last night.)
See? It’s actually kind of a tough question. For what it’s worth, Buzzfeed ran a poll, and surprisingly, three-quarters of people say straws just have one hole. (Buzzfeed)
straws have one hole. would you say a donut has 2 holes? no. a straw is just a long plastic donut. its not long enough to get away with having 2 holes. humans are long enough donuts to have 2 holes, humans even have several holes. straws are not human length— malin (@c0conutcoke) January 24, 2018
