Cobblers & austerity.  Two parallel mental associations, take your pick as to which you consider appropriate...

Austerity, can't afford new shoes, take shoes to cobblers.  (Which we did when I was a kid - my school shoes usually had new heels at least once.)

'Austerity' political policy, excuse for redirecting money from ordinary people who need it to a few people who don't, 'cobblers'.

Hmmm, I don't think four words is quite what the game allows, so I'll go with 'nose' - as it does indeed have a hole in it, in fact two of them:  ie, nostrils  ;-)

(I bet that in German there's a single 50-syllable word for 'falling on my nose'!)
