    Why is it holething? Because there is a big hole in the middle? The Chinese character says “Mars”. The shape does not resemble Mars, it looks like “Saturn”

    But the great thing is that the Chinese and English sound so similar! Huo Xing. Hole Thing. It’s such a close match that it’s entirely reasonable.

    Mr. Donut’s best seller. The Chinese is not MARS it’s a transliteration for all those foreigners who can’t speak Chinese. HOLE THING sounds like 火星。 Mr. Donut’s donuts are too dry but their coffee isn’t so bad!

    From Hoodwinked, “the Schnitzel Song”:

    Holethings, the favourite treat,
    For little girls and boys to eat.
    The holething man can serve ’em quick.
    It’s a holething on a stick.
    “No more spoons! Use your hands!”
    Says the friendly holething man.

    Person 1: I’d like a baker’s dozen of holethings.
    Person 2: Hole things? You mean like donuts?
    Person 1: Yeah, the hole thing.
    Person 2: It’s called a donut.
    Person 1: Yeah, whatever, I just want the holething.
    Person 2: The whole what…?
    Person 1: Not the hole, the hole thing!
    Person 2: Well, I’ll just get you a baker’s dozen of donuts then… that’ll be $78.
