Bio
I'm an old, short, fat, unsightly, grouchy, reformed troll with a bad attitude and a cricket bat. ---------------------------------------------------- I need to state clearly that English is not my first language. There are upwards of 600,000 words in the English language. In my native language there are a mere 11,000 and most of those are entire concepts (kind of like the theory of relativity) rather than words which translate individually. ----------------------------------------------------- Free advice: Don't.

And now you know what various groups of animals are called.   

O/e may be right though... they could all be applied to politicians.

I know, these were some of your favorite bands! Mine too!!! Can I add "A Flock of Seagulls"?
One day when out for a drive with my first mother/father in law, we were on a highway that went up a couple of thousand feet and overlooked a valley far below. There were a number of small lakes at the bottom of the valley.

"Oh! Look at all the little groups of water," she exclaimed.

That became our favourite family joke as we teased her about that for years......

So poetic...a romp of otters, a shiver of sharks. Thanks for sharing these MrsR! (Sky, I also like your MIL's little groups of water...:)
The only one of these that I knew ahead of time was a murder of crows. They used to call my son Webster because of his vocabulary. They should call you Roget.
