"Squat Hole born and Squat Hole bred, thick of arm and thick of head."
"Squat Hole born and Squat Hole bred, what jolly clever folk they all are."
Pleasantville saying in the presence of squats.
"Why study the squats?" I was asked by a friend recently "Surely they're just a bunch of squitty psychopaths best avoided." While the description "squitty psychopaths" is undeniable, and "best avoided" would be considered by many as scarcely less so, I would take issue with the word "just", there is more to Squat Hole than this. The squats of Squat Hole have a dense and closely knit social structure which has more byways and folk customs than the casual observer might suppose, and I would suggest that a study of Squat Hole society is both timely and relevant to understanding the Island as a whole. The Squat Hole project attempts to document for posterity this dangerous, yet fascinating culture, and this page provides an index of relevant documents. Of course, such a project can never be called complete, and so this is inevitably work in progress. 1)
