Collective nouns

Post by Shy Torque on Mon 17 Mar 2008, 11:36 pm

We've all "herd of cows" & some of us have come across a "flock of sheep",

but what about the more unusual ones - a "murder of crows" for example.

I always used the term "bunch of arseholes" until a colleague put me right - the collective noun for arseholes is "buggery"

What are you favourites?
