and thats'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

"A stank of track stars" is excellent! :)

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? ;)
