You are an amazing alternative unit of measurement. Better than all those other silly ones.
A lot of kittens? Lame.
A boatload cocaine? Way too much.
A fuck-ton of ice cream? Stupid.
A pile of money? C'mon. Really?
But imagine if it was bucket of kittens? Cocaine? Ice cream? And money?
Listen, a fuck-ton of ice cream would be absolutely wonderful but it's not useful at all! It's just hyperbole.
We get it. "Fuck-ton" or "pile" or "boatload" does indeed get the point across. But it's not as useful in every day life. But with you, Bucket, you get a true idea of how much awesomeness you have.
You can't really go wrong with using you to quantify something. In many ways, you are like Baby Bear's porridge: Just right.
