metric buttload
 n.— «“It was embarrassing for some customers to see a naked woman on the cover wrapped in a talis [prayer shawl], and you can see her nipple really clearly,” says Alle Hall, marketing manager of Seattle’s Tree of Life Judaica, who carried the book but felt it would be most appropriate not to display it face-out. Nevertheless, “We sold a metric buttload of those books.”» —“Friction in the Family” by David Klinghoffer Publisher’s Weekly Mar. 24, 2003. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
