Collective Nouns for Humans in the Wild [Feb. 28th, 2018|10:36 am]

With thanks to [personal profile] radiantfracture for introducing me to this poem by Kathy Fish, whom I had not previously met:
A group of grandmothers is a tapestry. A group of toddlers, a jubilance (see also: a bewailing). A group of librarians is an enlightenment. A group of visual artists is a bioluminescence. A group of short story writers is a Flannery. A group of musicians is — a band.

It gets less happy.
