Fuqua Tonne

It's official - Fuqua, aka Critter, is in the wikipedia. A Fuqua Tonne means "exactly enough, neither more nor less than an absolutely critical amount."


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

A Fuqua - English slang, unit of measure "Fuqua Tonne" or "Fuqua Load" a synonym of "enough" - to have one's fill. Considered to be the most exact unit of it's kind

Fuqua is a colloquiliasm of Charlottesville and surrounding areas. Can be used as an exclamation: Fuqua! (Enough) pronounced "few'kwah"

Usage: q: "How much do you have of that" a: "A Fuqua Tonne"

How to determine if you have a Fuqua Tonne of something.

If you have some, (more than zero) of something, and the answer to "Do you want more" of that something is "no" or "naw" then you have a Fuqua Tonne

Chris "Critter" Fuqua of Old Crow Medicine Show became a living paradigm of the Fuqua Tonne when he decided to pass at the "opportunity" to achieve greater earthly fame, explaining he had had "enough" and did not need "more" fame (YET - fyi the gentle reader may duly note that all's well with them fine yung upstarts from down in the valley, they're all swell). With that he had the first officially termed "Fuqua Tonne" of show business....

for the time
