1. I’m going to sound like a real geek here, but sometimes you just have to say, “Gosh! The English language!” This list of collective nouns is where the Venn diagram of awesome, funny and found poetry overlaps. A sampling:

    A murmuration of starlings

    A crash of rhinoceroses

    A bloat of hippototami

    A shoal of shads

    A thought of barons

    A shrivel of critics

    A prudence of vicars
