(what’s the) HoldUp (?) – The term “hold-up” has many different meanings and usages in different parts of speech.  But posed in the form of a question like this it means:  “What is the cause for delay?”  the “hold-up” is the thing which is causing the delay…  Question:  “I sent the documents over six weeks ago!  What’s the *hold-up*!?!?!”   Answer:  “Apparently the documents where held in U.S. customs for over three weeks…  I guess they are very busy with the thousands and millions of terrorists in the world who are trying to hurt and kill Americans…  I guess they had to make sure that your document wasn’t a bomb.”  (true story)
