and that’s all for t’night

a murmuration of starlings
a gaggle of geese
a leap of leopards
a skulk of foxes
a knot of toads
a parliament of owls
a shoal of bass
a nest of rabbits
a richness of martens
a cowardice of curs

and to this i might add:

a giggle of high school girls
a slank of high school boys
a boredom of teenagers
a frenzy of teenagers
a roly-poly of infants
a knot of cars
a stank of track stars
a grunt of football players
a gangle of basketball players
a svelte of volleyball players
a prude of churchgoers
a click of programmers
a pucker of teachers
a discernment of administrators
a regulation of attendance officers
a wit of bloggers
a zombie of video game players

    Martens are illegal in 46 of the 50 states, due to excessive cuteness.

    Nice.A quiz of teachers is better than “a pucker of teachers.” What does a “pucker of teachers” refer to? Are you saying teachers are ass kissers? ;)-Suley
