LOL that's exactly what I was thinking.

I'm guessing something to do with covering something up.....

Looks like.... well, beyond that... a misspelling of aloha.   I am going with an informal greeting.

This has to be a Hawaiian term. I have a lot of Pacific Islander students..... no clue what it means, though. I know "haole" means non- native-Hawaiian. Often used for white mainland tourists!

LOL You gals are funny!!!!  

I found it in the Hawaiian Dictionary...

Ahole:  An endemic fish found in both fresh and salt water.  The mature stage is ahole, the young stage aholehole.  Because of the meaning of "hole," to strip away, this fish was used for magic, as to chase away evil spirits and for love magic.  It was also called a “sea pig” and used ceremonially as a substitute for pig. 

And Cara... you are on the right track.... Foreigners were sometimes called ahole because of the light skin of the fish. 

I don't know if this is a true picture but they sure are pretty!

Not confirmed, but I have had my suspicions.
