So, we all know that it's a 'Pod' of dolphins, a 'Litter' of kittens, a 'Pride' of lions, a 'Flock' of sheep. But did you know about a 'Crash' of rhinos or a 'Mischief' of mice? No, me neither until I watched a children's DVD the other day, which got me thinking.
So, in the spirit of 'Back To School' time, and continuing our education, I thought I would share a few more 'Collective Nouns' with you all. You may not be familiar with all of these. I like to call them 'Domestic Collectives'.
A 'Bombardment' of laundry
An 'Annoyance' of toast crumbs
A 'Frustration' of toys
A 'Confusion' of socks
A 'Ridiculousness' of plastic cups and beakers
An 'Embarrassment' of cobwebs
A 'Repulsion' of loo brushes
A 'Disappointment' of uneaten meals
A 'Clutter' of plastic magazine toys
A 'Chaos' of breakfast cereals
A 'Depression' of ironing
A 'Crumple' of bed sheets
A 'Dither' of things for the charity shop
An 'Avoidance' of dust
An 'Awkwardness' of duvet covers
Did I miss any?
