In fruit[edit]

For pits in fruit, the only meaning I know is the shell surrounding the seed; a seed without a shell is not a pit. Thus one speaks of a cherry pit or a peach pit, but not an orange pit or an apple pit. Can you cite examples otherwise? -PierreAbbat 01:54, 26 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Pits and bits[edit]

Regarding the "armpit" sense: I have occasionally encountered "pits and bits", meaning armpits and genitals, i.e. the simplest possible wash without taking a proper shower. It's on the very brink of CFI-attestability. Equinox 01:15, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
