I would like that same measurement on my bagel, please.
I'm pretty sure I will be giggling when I have to shop for the holiday baking needs, thanks to you!


Funny! And yes, one of the best parts of families.

We have a similar laugh when spreading what might be considered to be excessive amounts of butter on anything, while saying "I DO love butter" which is mimicking what my son said once when he was four.

I myself tend to use the term shit ton excessively. I'd bet you may have googled both terms already but there are some pretty funny urban dictionary definitions of both. According to one source, a metric f*ck ton is equivalent to 10 shitloads, etc. And numerous other not safe for work definitions...

oh yes, the language in this household is quite salty too :)
Listen, sorry I did not get back to you, please send a reminder for next Tuesday's family pic extravaganza? Thanks!

Aunt Snow

I love this! I also love Heather's comment - you should put together a comparison table!


Love it! We have a lot of those, but the first that comes to mind is a "shlup". It's a cross between a slob and frumpy. As in, she looks so good, I feel like a shlup.

Busy Bee Suz

I LOVE that! Yep, we have so many inside jokes that it makes me feel sorry for the outsiders. ;)


I love how it started as an angry declaration and has morphed into something that everybody in the family gets a kick out of. We have a few things like that in my fam and they are still cracking us up decades later.

I love private languages, and f*ckton just slayed me. Not surprising at all to learn your family does this!

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen

We have ass loads around here. I might have to adopt the f*ck ton too.

Deb D

As a Canadian I have to point out that F*ck ton is not a metric measurement ;-). Maybe it's F*ck tonne?


I think that is too funny! love it!


i'm with Claudia and her 'shit load'..i use that one quite often. oh...and butt load...actually...butt is used more often in phrases like 'butt tired'...butt hungry...butt ugly...butt nasty. i knew i had probably used it too often when my 10-year-old (who speaks English as a second language) said that the car that raced past us was "butt fast".

by the way...that "ichiro been berry berry good to me" reminds me of WKRP in Cinncinnati!!! hahaha!!!
