It is in the UK but I am not too sure if its differs from an imperial
assload or if a US Imperial assload is different from a UK imperial assload.
Judging by the shorts sported by some US tourists recently observed at a
museum in the UK , unlike pints, the US version is larger.
p.s. If any one over this side needs proms I have a few, and can program
some of the more common variety.
