Pretending to ourselves that we are so wonderful that we don't really produce crap can have shocking consequences when we're forcefully confronted in a flood with what went down the pan.
The Scottish Word:

Fleet Dyke.

“Darling I think there’s a chink in oor airmour, the fleet dyke’s lettin in.”

Translated:

fleet dyke: a wall to prevent flooding.

“Darling I think we’ve left a chink in our armour, the flood barrier is leaking a bit.”

[fleet dyke spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]
