DL Collective Nouns
Years ago, NPR did a contest where listeners had to come up with new collective nouns (e.g. a [italic]murder[/italic] of crows, a [italic]school[/italic] of fish, a [italic]flock[/italic] of sheep). They gave a list of words, and listeners had to submit their collective noun ideas.
Let's see how well DL can do. What are the best collective nouns you can come up with for any or all of the below terms?
Please feel free to include any common DL terms I'm forgetting, but I thought it would be fun if we all started with the same ones!

You mean this definition, r88?
You're a quick learner. As you surmise, "bump bitch" is the name we give to those who bump threads that are older than a year, some from 2015 and even before. There was one from 2010 last night. Talk about a bump bitch.
