Better Collective Nouns for Animals


(Video Link)

"A gaggle of goslings?" No, let's call a group of baby geese a "Ryan of goslings." Instead of a "drove of bulls," say a "load of bulls." Don't say a "cast of hawks," but a "Tony of hawks." Jeff Wysaski has some great ideas for new plural nouns for animals.
