Is the use of the word "buyed" vs. "bought" relevant, other than in that it suggests the statement was made by a child?
Is the statement correct?
Did he buy an existing hole?
Did he buy something with a hole in it?
Did he pay to have a hole created in something?
Roughly how much did he pay - less than: $1? $10? $100? $1000?
Anything to do with golf? mining?

Is this hole to be brought home and put in the house? In the yard? Will it stay where it is?

Did the father literally buy nothingness? The thing in which the nothingness is contained? Did he pay to remove something?

Kitral Solane (Solane):
Graveplot? {No}
Diggers? {No}
Was it a hole in the ground?
A person? An item? This is closest.
A living thing?
Object? Or this.

John Morahan (Wunderland) :
Is the use of the word "buyed" vs. "bought" relevant, other than in that it suggests the statement was made by a child? Not particularly. It's a true story; that was the statement made.
Is the statement correct? I'd say yes.
Did he buy an existing hole? Yes, if I interpret your question correctly.
Did he buy something with a hole in it? Yope - it's as close to buying just a hole as one can probably come.
Did he pay to have a hole created in something? No
Roughly how much did he pay - less than: $1? $10? Around here - USD $15-$20
$100? $1000?
Anything to do with golf? mining? No

Cake (Comforteagle):
Is this hole to be brought home and put in the house? Yes, this one.
In the yard? Will it stay where it is?

Did the father literally buy nothingness? No, there was an actual thing bought.
The thing in which the nothingness is contained? You could say that, I suppose.
Did he pay to remove something? No

Of the object, does the hole itself contribute to it's primary function?
Does the hole allow another complimentary object(s) to fit inside as a part of it's function?
Or is the hole purely aesthetic?

Zenith (Zenith)
Of the object, does the hole itself contribute to it's primary function? Yes, inasmuch as it has a function.
Does the hole allow another complimentary object(s) to fit inside as a part of it's function? Yope - not another object per se, but the hole's function does involve what will be inside of it.
Or is the hole purely aesthetic? But partly this too. In a sense, it's function is aesthetic.

Comforteagle (Comforteagle):

Does it hold a solid? A liquid? A gas? An organism? Yopishly a solid - it doesn't really "hold" anything, as much as things are within it or through it.

Theredlady (Theredlady):
How old is the son or daughter? Yes. j/k, assuming ltpf integer list, she's 2.
Does the child know what the 'hole' is suppose to be used for? Not at first.

Comforteagle (Comforteagle):
Is it a ring? No, but not a bad way to think about it - that will get you close to the answer.

Crazypalpig (Crazypalpig):
Is the daddy's job relevant? No

Sherluck_hums (Sherluck_hums):

hmmm, is it a hole that a coffin goes in... just a guess........ No, but that would add a macabre bent to the puzzle

Crazypalpig (Crazypalpig):
Does the hole stop, or does it go right through an object? It goes clear through.

Is it topographically a torus, a figure eight, or have 3 or more holes?

Shape (object):
is it a prism of:
Circular? (ie. cylindrical)
Square or Rectangular?
Oval?
Regular polygon? (If so does it have LTPF list of Natural Numbers sides)
irregular ploygon? (If so does it have LTPF list of Natural Numbers sides)

Orientating the object with the plane of the hole normal to the z axis, x facing towards us, and y to the right, with the longer side of the object along this direction (assuming it has one):
size:
is object along Z-Z less than a cm long? 1-5cm? 6-10cm? 10-100cm? longer?
is object along X-X less than a cm long? 1-5cm? 6-10cm? 10-100cm? longer?
is object along Y-Y less than a cm long? 1-5cm? 6-10cm? 10-100cm? longer?

Is the hole circular, oval or a polygon?
Inscribing the smallest circle that will fit round the hole, is it less than a cm in Diameter? 1-5cm? 6-10cm? 10-100cm? wider?

Crazypalpig (Crazypalpig):

Is it food? if so, A huge doughnut? No, and no.

Zenith (Zenith):
Is it topographically a torus, a figure eight, or have 3 or more holes? Most closely a torus, which i had to look up.

Shape (object):
is it a prism of:
Circular? (ie. cylindrical)
Square or Rectangular? rectangular
Oval?
Regular polygon? (If so does it have LTPF list of Natural Numbers sides)
irregular ploygon? (If so does it have LTPF list of Natural Numbers sides)

Orientating the object with the plane of the hole normal to the z axis, x facing towards us, and y to the right, with the longer side of the object along this direction (assuming it has one): eh? do you mean which will it be facing under these conditions?
size:
is object along Z-Z less than a cm long? 1-5cm? 6-10cm? 10-100cm? longer?
is object along X-X less than a cm long? 1-5cm? 6-10cm? 10-100cm? longer?
is object along Y-Y less than a cm long? 1-5cm? 6-10cm? 10-100cm? longer?
as discovered the object is rectangular, appx. 120 cm length, 90 cm height, maybe 2 cm depth. (USian= ~4 ft. x 3ft., 1" deep)

Is the hole circular, oval or a polygon? polygon
Inscribing the smallest circle that will fit round the hole, is it less than a cm in Diameter? 1-5cm? 6-10cm? 10-100cm? wider? it'd be around 85 cm in diameter i think.

"Daddy buyed a hole!"

I recently converted a spare bedroom into a playroom for my 2-year-old daughter, and as part of the project, painted a chalkboard on the wall. When I brought home the frame to put around the painted chalkboard area, I asked my daughter if she knew what it was, and she said, "Yeah - Daddy buyed a hole!"

Hard to disagree. "Yeah," I said to her, "Daddy's not very good with money."
