Lube of
 
Is "lube of" used to express quantity? I ve just read a tweet containing that combination of words and I don t get the meaning of the tweet. Thanks for replying!

I ve never seen it as a quantity.
Lube is an abbreviation of Lubrication. What is the rest of the sentence and the context?
 
Could it be a typo (typographical error)?

Hi carinita!

They re playing word games. They re making group/collective nouns for persons or things related to the medical industry.

 There are many inventive group/collective nouns that are based upon perceived qualities of things. Some examples are a murder of crows ; a parliament of owls ; a sloth of bears ; and countless others!
 
Cheers,

Haha,
 
 your friend just uses predictive text and talks about sex more than he uses the word load.
 
L=L
u=o
b=a (both are typed on the same button)
e=d  (both are typed on the same button)
 
The u=o one is odd but it s almost certainly this typo combined with your friend s dirty texting history ;)
