I'm thinking more along the lines of a mochacchino hole.

As with all "Starts with a Bang" articles, I started with the last paragraph and worked my way up. I only had to read three paragraphs to get to the point of the article. There's your life hack for today.

Subby, smallest or least massive or something would make a lot more sense. Lightest is not a good word to use given
a) it is an issue of mass not weight and
b) lightest could easily be confused when talking about black holes or stellar objects to mean brightest, or giving off or absorbing the most light
c) smallest or tiniest would also have been preferable, size is reasonable to use when discussing black holes

I've never met a bhole who was tiny.  Unless you mean they were a little person, in which case, they were a little person but a big bhole
