I find this list very humorous. It’s the list of what you call groups of animals. Some of my favorites so far:

  • A pace of asses
  • A business of ferrets
  • A tower of giraffes
  • A bloat of hippopotamuses
  • A cackle of hyenas
  • A barrel of monkeys
  • A prickle of porcupines
  • An intrusion of cockroaches
  • A smack of jellyfish
  • A plague of locusts

And according to other sites, a congregation is made up of alligators or crocodiles.

What are your favorites?

    How about a gaggle of geese?

  • Murder of crows. Absolutely my favorite. Doesn’t hurt that it’s also in a Sting song.
    BTW, LOVE LOVE LOVE the new look. Rocked my world. I often read your blog through Sage, so it was quite a shock. AWEsome fontage, bro.
