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.
