The pound is a unit of force

One pound is the force that will accelerate one slug of matter at one
foot per second, per second:

Two pounds is the force that will accelerate one slug of matter at two
feet per second, per second:

The units of mass in the customary foot-pound-second system are three
in number; they are the pound of force (f), or weight (w), and
displacement (s) caused by that force; per the period of time during
which the displacement occurs.

Mathematically the units of mass are related as: 1 slug = 1# sec^2/foot
= 2# sec^2/2 feet = 20# sec^2/20 feet = 32# sec^2/32 feet, and so on.

So it isn't a unit of mass!

Right... Got it. But now I am wondering... What will happen when you go to
three pounds?

Three pounds is the force that will accelerate one slug of matter at
three feet per second, per second:
