A ton equals 2000 lbs.


*Note to self:  When  you tell someone they “weigh a ton” chose the recipient carefully.


*PC  uses for ton:  Describing airplanes, sports cars, linebackers, chocolate, muscle, and Parisian platforms. 


*On a date:  Wow, you’re pick-up is so big, I’ll bet it pulls at least ten tones.


*At Asian restaurants: I’ll have the won-ton soup.


*In Oklahoma: Give me a hackler on that two-ton bird. (Hackler:  an unusually large serving of gravy or sauce, not even close to a ton) 


Tonnage:  Excess of anything.
