This contest is shamelessly stolen from the guys at Car Talk. A few years ago they pointed out that a lot of things have interesting terms for a group — a pride of lions, a murder of crows, a parliament of owls, and so on — and had a contest for new, creative names for groups of things. The winners included a huevos of Rancheros, a shrug of mechanics, a sleaze of lawyers, a shortage of jockeys, a lot of car dealers, and so on. I’ll also toss my contribution of a basement of losers on to the pile.
So come up with your own collective term and post them in the comments section. Winners oughta be announced Thursday.
