    You can always do like I do and eat ice cream out of your coffee mugs. I don't drink coffee but I've got a metric buttload of ice cream mugs sitting around my house. :)
      *still laughing* I had to ++ this if only because the thought of a 'metric buttload' of icecream put me into hysterical laughter.

      Also - best of both worlds - a metric buttload of 'Coffee Nut Flavored' icecream!

      *G*
      I have to agree with growlf on this: A "metric buttload" is a unit of measurement of which I was not aware, but clearly should have been. Can we get some more detail on this? Is this a unit of volume or mass? Is the NIST aware of it and do they have a gold standard for it in their possession? (That's quite a mental image, isn't it?)

      Well, depending upon the price, I probably can't afford a metric buttload of PM mugs, but if you will sell them in other units sign me up for a metric centibuttload of them.

        Well, I consulted my local dialect champion and he explained to me that it is indeed a unit of measure for volume comprising the average male capacity for retentive behavior in typical societal pressure at sea level. This leads me to believe that (since I hail from the Seattle area and have had long bouts of this sort of pressure heaped on myself and colleagues from our erstwhile employer - MS without ever seeing them explode.. much) this is, in fact, quite a large unit measure. Quite so, I think that I shall begin purchasing my Vodka direct from Russia (medicative purposes only, of course) in these increments.

        *G*
      Whose butt is the standard for a metric buttload?
      TIA
