In Canada we use "horking", as in a horking big amount.
Some Americans find this offensive.Yes, it means what it sounds like.

Stelleria, I think "crapton" would be imperial, as the metric would be spelled "craptonne" and pronounced, by some, in a slightly different manner.

Would someone like to create a new topic for all the crap discussion? The person asked a pottery question and it's just got out of control. I'd rather not unsubscribe to stop getting the cute quips, but I'd much prefer to read comments that are addressed to the topic question. Thanks!

I just discovered how to "unfollow" a topic, so I've done that to satisfy myself.

I'm with Marian65. If I was the OP, I would feel marginalized and sort of put down. If we are here to help each other, let's do that.
I wonder if the OP even continues to check their thread after it has been hacked by a round of jokes.
But if the OP IS the joker, then it's fair to joke back. Big difference here, to my way of thinking.

Apologies for side tracking this serious discussion.
hate to put anyone off this forum.
Somedays a little humour in this testing world of ceramics adds a bit of lightness to some folks days.
Will try to keep on track from now on.
Let's keep personalities out of this forum........

There are at least two types of people in the world, those that follow the rules to the letter and never deviate from the norm, and those that can get the job done and fool around a bit in the process. Guess which group I fall into… To those that find the silliness inane and beneath them, I do not apologize for my outlook on life and I won't let you bully me into changing. That said, I think shitton is preferable to crapton because it can be employed in two ways. Shitton as in a LOT, or shitt on as in how one can be made to feel when enough negative people gang up and try to squash a bit of good hearted tomfoolery. Great word, tomfoolery. Thanks for that Stell.
On a pottery note, yes the bullets are simple closed forms with holes cut into them. Some I stamp, some I add handles, and I make a variety of sizes.

Love them! Have to get a user friendly name.
my husband suggested "flower ######" if flower bullet was offensive to some. goodness knows that name wouldn't upset anyone see what i'm working with here people! i think i do pretty darned well to just toss around the term shitton now and then
That's probably taken, but it makes me smile.
and i must admit, Flower ###### makes me smile, but you make 'em, you name 'em.

Crapton...........is that Elic Crapton - well known Engrish guitar player?
Make mugs - who doesn't drink tea or coffee?
I'll have you all know that my claim to fame is that I bought Elic Crapton's brother-in-law's Craftman toolbox several years ago. ;>)
I do agree with ajay that you should make cups..... I make alot of 2 lb. cups, make a bulbuous body with a rib on a stick, trim, and put one or two handles on it.
When I get bored I'll push in the leather hard clay eye sockets, then proceed to put eyes on, nose, and mouths.... Some have vampire teeth from white clay.
Most of my face mugs have two handles.
If you decide to make bowls, I make 1 1/2 pound bowls, pull a spout and handle... Its more like a small batter bowl.
I also tell people who I make this stuff for to use it every chance and if you happen to wear it out from use, I'll make another.... my nightmare is to
find out something I made is forgotten on a shelf. If they use the cup I made for them, they have to think of me everytime they pick it up.
Just have fun, make a list of who needs a cup or bowl and fulfill the list.
