quicko: to do the harold holt

Rhyming slang for "to disappear" -- Holt rhymes with bolt; to bolt is to disappear quickly.  Interestingly of course, Harold Holt is the Australian Prime Minister that did indeed do the Harold Holt -- and vanished into the ocean one day never to be seen again.

These days, it runs more along the lines of "where'd Gina and Jess go?" -- "don't know, haven't seen them anywhere -- they must've done the Harold Holt."

Cute example. They are probably still here in Ohio, waiting for kirribillikim to do the Harold Holt herself and return home.
