Unless your a one of those NY City turd smuggler or something strange like that, (Thats frowned upon in these parts of NY)!

We refer to that as a Buckload around here when we dont want to curse (Thats not often, I like cursing), not to be confused with Buckshot, two completely different critters, I suppose you could have a Buckload of Buckshot. "Ive got a Buckload of bullets" is proper usage, I think that comes from the word Buckboard or "crappy ass wagon without sides"! Back then when they came up with the phrase, they didnt have bungees like we do now so a Buckload wasnt as much then as it is today.

Thats not to be confused with a Sh!tload either, thats a whole different system of measure. Saying you have a Sh!tload of Bullets isnt very descriptive, its more of a semi liquid measure, "I have a Sh!tload of beer, let"s have at it" is more apropos.

Proper Rural Engliss Etiquette is impotent, otherwise you might be confused with one of those citified critters weve grown to dislike!
I hear we now have a Metric sh!tty-butt-load of health insurance coverage available these days.......

I was appealing to the "imperial" part more than the butt part but good to know who's got a a** fetish
