Read the comic and try to guess the meaning of the idiom 'a ton of.'
a ton of (tons of): a lot of something; a large amount of something.
A ton is a unit of measurement that is used to weigh very heavy things.
1 ton = 2,000 pounds (910 kilograms)
The idiom "a ton of" doesn't mean that there is actually 2,000 pounds of something. It's simply used as a way to emphasize or exaggerate the amount of something.
The idiom can be used to talk about anything (e.g., hugs, strawberries, happiness, cars)
