A Congress of Useless Men? Thanks to John Adams for that one.

The pub were we go for weekly trivia contests has been having questions on what grounds of animals are called. Last night it was an Army of Frogs.

This thread is going to help us for future weeks..

A group of house cats is a clowder or a glaring. A glaring if they are uncertain of each other.

Now a litter of kittens can also be called a kindle

There was a show called "Curiosity Shop." One of the episodes dealt with this and made up names for odd groups. The one that stuck in my head was the little kid who came up with; "A Holler of Moms!"
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

There's a turkey in an Oakland CA park named Gerald who terrorizes the humans. Jumps on their backs, pecking...chasing people up stairways, etc. A park visitor said it was like being in Jurassic Park. Anyway, the newspaper writer referred to a "rafter" of wild turkeys (altho "flock" will also do). Not a "raft" like a raft of ducks or otters, but a "rafter". These wild turkeys have been also taking over major streets; yet no one is allowed to either kill or feed them. However, it you google Gerald up, you might get an internet side bar... 'how to prepare smoked turkey'. Lynn
