The size varies because there are different sizes of butts.

Smallest unit of measuring assignments or work. Equivalent to 1/10 a shitload but only 1/100 of a f***load and hardly equivalent to 1/1000 of a motherf***ingload.

However according to Lay-man's law of increasing marginal procrastination the magnitude of a buttload increases exponentially if there is a "due-date" factor.
For example if you have a midterm 2,500 word essay due in three months, one would say "I have a butt load of work,".

If it's due in two months, "Mein I have a shitload of work..." And one month "F*** I have a f***load of work!"

Then one night (give or take a few minutes before class) "WTF, I have a a motherf***ingload of work!!!"

But citing Lay-man's final principle of marginal procrastination- "terminal improbability" once all time has elapsed on the "due-date" and no acting impetus to initiate work has come about there is "utter finality" or "F*** this motherf***ing essay"
