A: Actually I just looked again. To make it easier to understand you can read it like this:

The hole is a serious matter; the locals who tend to it would no more joke about their humble opening in the earth than they would (joke) about a hole in the head, or the heart." Here the word (joke) was left out to make it sound more eloquent, it's just for style :)
