Bottomless pit - How can a pit be bottomless? Well, this idiom is a bit funny but it means good. If you have a bottom of something then if you pour something in it, it will fill but if something does not have a bottom, it won't fill ever, and especially when you compare it with a pit (it's funny). This idiom means that someone or something is never satisfied with what he/she/it has, and wants more, especially money.
