Does a Straw Have One Hole or Two?

Jess from Burbank, California posted a question on Twitter and it’s making the internet CRAZY!

“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?”


So which is it? Some Twitter users have very strong opinions about it.

@c0conutcoke, quote, “Would you say a donut has two holes?  No.  A straw is just a long plastic donut.” She is clearly on the one-hole side.

@craig_shetterly thinks differently, saying  “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.”

Buzzfeed also did a poll on it Three-quarters of people say straws just have one hole.

What do you think?
