COLLECTIVE NOUNS

FIBBING FRIDAY – July 8, 2022

I actually have a few books about these dating back to my college days when many of you hadn’t yet been born. Some of these “real” ones are centuries old, but many are new, made up because people find them fun. If you like word play, these are just fun.

1. A dynasty of DYSTOPIANS
2. A bevy of CARBONATES
3. A mustering of MALINGERERS
4. A scold of ADOLESCENTS
5. A cast of ACTING SCHOOL GRADUATES
6. A sedge of HEDGES
7. A comb of BALDIES
8. A pod of SUNFLOWER SEEDS
9. A covey of NERVOUS NELLIES
10. A party of BOOZERS
11. A boggle of BLOGGERS
12. A bo-peep of LAMBS
13. A confusion of REMOTES

AND finally,
14. A google of SEARCHES.

A book about time travel is titled (really): An Argumentation of Historians by Jodi Taylor. Great book and funny, too. It’s a series, now 13 books with another on the way. Available as Kindle from Amazon and for listeners from Audible.com.

  1. Very witty answers Marilyn! I’ll have to check out that book too, because it sounds like something I’d really enjoy! And good one on those additional ‘collectives 11-13’ I did a spit take on that last one 🤣

    • Garry went to full giggles on a confusion of remotes. We have five — four for the television and DVD player and one more for the machine that plays CDs and yes, I still like having my own music and movies. I don’t like renting them.

      You keep your spirits up. Doctors should not be giving you life-death info without knowing what’s going on. That’s just lazy and cheap. Trust me. It is NOT that difficult to check for pancreatic cancer. I’ve had it done and so has my son. It’s just an x-ray!

    • The original was called “An Exaltation of Larks” and I think it has been reprinted.

      An Exaltation of Larks: The Ultimate Edition

      But there are used ones (I buy a lot of used books!) for as little as $2.

  2. Willow came up with a ‘Lovey of Actors’, which I think is brilliant!
