I think ' take a load of ' something is to take a look at it, right ?

Well, one thing for sure, it must be entirely different from the ' take a load off ' that we have been discussing these days.

Let me make a sentence to see if it is correctly in use.

eg Wow, take a load of that girl, what a knockout !!! ( correct ??? )

Hey whl,

I think you mean 'Get a load of that girl' ..

with Hitch, I think it's 'get a load of that girl', never heard of 'take a load of that girl'.
When somebody says 'get a load of that girl' it means 'hey, look at that girl'.

What do you mean Hitch? It is not in the dict.

Yep, "a load" means "a lot of" in this case.
" Take a load of that girl " is a sentence of my own makingEmotion: smile. The original context I came across is " Wow, wait til the kids at school take a load of that. ".

It shows that there is ' take a load of ' in existence.
In that case the sentence would mean:

"Wow, wait til the kids at school take a load of that "stuff" away."

But I think it may just have meant to read:

"Wow, wait til the kids at school get a load of that."

What would the last sentence mean, Hitch?
"Wow, wait til the kids at school get an eyefull of that." (wait till they see that)
