JUST FOR FUN

By On Jun 17 2011, 12:01 am

Have you ever wondered why we say a pride of lions or a gaggle of geese?

The answer is they likely had their origin in a word game, named Venery, that was in vogue several hundred years ago.

The rules are simple. First someone suggests a group name (like geese or lions), and then everyone tries to come up with a descriptive noun to form an unexpected word picture.

Here are some I came up with:

A GALA OF DAHLIAS

A BROUHAHA OF BEARS

A HOVER OF GULLS

A BACCHANAL OF BOOBIES

A FLITTER OF ASPENS

A WHIMSY OF WHALE TAILS

 

As well –

A DECANTATE OF WINOS

A VERISIMILITUDE OF TWINS

AN OBFUSCATION OF POLITICIANS

AN INCOHERENCY OF TERRORISTS

What gaggles and prides can you come up with?
