Two years ago I wrote a post about group descriptors. Phrases like a pride of lions and a murder of crows, as well as three that I invented myself.
Based upon what I wrote in that post, I didn’t like any of the descriptors that I had invented at the time. But two years later, I find myself liking them a lot.
Perhaps I am an acquired taste, even to myself.
My three descriptors were:
- A gamble of poker players
- A concern of mothers
- A fumble of left-handers
I mention this today because I just learned about one of the greatest group descriptors of all:
A crash of rhinoceroses
Pretty fabulous. Huh?
