fire in the hole
 n.— «The prank, known as “fire in the hole,” has become common in the past year. It happened July 25 to fast-food worker Jessica Ceponis at the drive-through of the Taco Bell in Merritt Island, about 50 miles east of Orlando. Ceponis handed a carload of teenagers their soft drinks. When she returned to the drive-through window to give them their change, they yelled, “Fire in the hole!” hurled a 32-ounce cup of soda at Ceponis and sped off.» —“Teens must post apology on YouTube” by Keyonna Summers in Viera, Florida USA Today June 9, 2008.
