"Man, nobody know no fool named Theodore!''"
―Armpit correcting Mr. Pendanski.

Armpit is a camper at Camp Green Lake. He is also the main protagonist of the Holes sequel Small Steps.

Before Camp Green Lake

Theodore was arrested and sent to Camp Green Lake for beating up two older boys at a movie theater, over a bucket of popcorn.

At Camp Green Lake

Theodore arrived at Camp Green Lake and received his nickname, Armpit, due to his impressively vicious body odor. While Caveman was at Camp Green Lake, Armpit became his "mentor" as assigned by Mr. Pendanski. Anyone who called Armpit by his real name, Theodore, would get shoved to the ground by him when Mr. Pendanski wasn't present.

Though a tough guy, he had a somewhat tender side, like when he saw Caveman's fish-fossil, he said in a sing-song voice, "Aww look at the little fishies! Aww... I mean that's cool...".

Even after getting his uniform washed, his B.O. was still a force to be reckoned with. As Stanley Yelnats IV was finally being accepted as Caveman, and getting into the swing of things, when Armpit showed off his clean duds, he proudly threw his arms wide, and the vicious body odour sent everyone - including Caveman - scrambling, gagging, and laughing. "OH PUT 'EM DOWN!"

After Camp Green Lake

Armpit was released from Camp Green Lake after it was closed down. It is not said what happens to him afterwards in Holes, but in the sequel to Holes, Small Steps, it is talked about.
