I did a posting Uncovered New Species and within the comments, my buddy Tippler registered this comment ->
I had a pal who was an archaeologist. One day in the pub we decided to think up a collective noun for them - We came up with 'a trample of archaeologists.'
which inevitably got me thinking. There are some weird and wonderful collective names for animals e.g.a prickle of porcupines, a shrewdness of apes, a murder of crows etc but , then I got thinking, what about a collective group who pursue the same occupation...
Here are my conclusions (feel free to suggest your own);-
A Dusting of Archaeologists
A Bunch of Florists
A Herd of Farmers
A School of Driving Instructors
A Coven of Lawyers
A Detention of Teachers
A Shoal of Divers
A Flock of Shepherds
A Pussy of Project Managers
Go on, go off on one - in a flurry of parachutists ;-)
ps YES, I will get back to attacking Org Rel tomorrow, just trying to fend off the twats in comment section at the mo - back you zealots !!
