An elementary school teacher in New Jersey was arrested after he allegedly snorted a morphine pill in front of students. Michael Palladino was arrested and charged with official misconduct, possession of morphine, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Officials said that Palladino had three morphine tablets in a bag in his desk and used a “homemade, hollow, cut, white Bic pen” to snort the crushed opioid. The complaint said that there was a teacher and student present when he ingested the drugs while sitting at his desk. Palladino is a teacher at Eagleswood Township Elementary School, which has around 300 students in Pre-K through sixth grade. It is unclear what grade Palladino taught. The school has not issued a statement on Palladino's arrest and his employment status at the school is unclear. (

(YOOL hole)
-The last hole to which one is able to stretch their belt at a Christmas dinner. (Shouldn't there be a thanksgiving hole?)

From Yule - from Old English gēol(a) ‘Christmas Day’; compare with Old Norse jól, originally applied to a heathen festival lasting twelve days, later to Christmas.

Used in a sentence:
"This year I need to add a whole new Yule hole to my belt… or just wear my Yule sweatpants!"
“Blow it out your Yule Hole Uncle Wilfred!”
