English term or phrase: Question 2: Which weighs more, a ton of silver or a ton of bricks
Hi guys. I wondered whether someone could translate this short sentence. It's just for a private joke with a friend. Long story.

Hope the moderator doesn't mind me posting a question that breaches the "one term at a time please". I have marked it as non-pro though!

Notes to answerer
Asker: He got the answer wrong by saying they weigh the same. The reason they don't is because precious metals are measured using the troy system, rather than the avantdupois system. Anyway, his excuse was "doesn't matter, it's not my language", so I just thought it would be amusing to pose him the same question in Welsh. Are you the Andrea I met in Paris? The profile certainly seems to fit.

Asker: Forget the last bit. The Andrea I know was definitely not doing A-levels in 1984.
