: Can someone please tell me the correct form of this phrase:

: "Give someone a rash of ****"
: or
: "Give someone a wrath of ****"

: "...a raft of ****"

I think the most common usage is a "ration of ****".

This is to say, you were given a certain amount of ****, not necessarily the appropriate amount, but not necessarily not either - the bunch of **** someone gives you could be the proper ration of ****.

I think I may have heard "raft" used, but I am not actually sure of that.
