Next time you want to say there is a lot of something use a buttload instead of a more generic term. A butt is 126 gallons of wine and enough wine to drown anyone in it so you are actually using a legitimate unit of measurement.

The butt (from the mediæval French and Italian botte) or pipe was half a tun, or 1008 pints. Tradition has it that George, Duke of Clarence, the brother of Edward IV of England, was drowned in a butt of malmsey on 18 February 1478.[5][6] (However, Josephine Tey in The Daughter of Time suggests that "drowned in a butt of malmsey" means rather that George, Duke of Clarence, drank himself to death rather than literally drowning in a container of wine.) In Edgar Allan Poe's short story "The Cask of Amontillado", the narrator claims he has received "a pipe of what passes for Amontillado". In Edward Bulwer-Lytton's novel "Paul Clifford", Lord Mauleverer states to Lawyer William Brandon "Because he sent me, in the handsomest manner possible, a pipe of that wonderful Madeira, which you know I consider the chief grace of my cellars, and he gave up a canal navigation bill, which would have enriched his whole county, when he knew that it would injure my property."

Unless you use the metric system then you have nothing funny only standardization.

Still a better unit than the pound mass.
One class, it was one class that really used. And I'm still salty and pissed that anyone ever thought it would be a good idea.

I have had extensive debate on this. Its a logarithmic scale.

buttload * 10 = 1 butt ton

butt ton * 10 = 1 assload

assload * 10 = 1 asston

asston * 10 = 1 shitload

shitload * 10 = 1 shitton

shitton * 10 = 1 fuckload

fuckload * 10 = 1 fuckton

so to awnser your initial question 1 fuckton = 103 shitloads = 107 buttloads
