OK...so it's a FLOCK of geese, a PACK of wolves, a PRIDE of lions, a MURDER of crows and a GRUMBLE of Pugs...


What is a group of BoB pipe smokers called?

A sniveling of siblings?

So...in the examples...the lions, the crows, etc. the species being described is clearly named...lions, crows...right? So taking that to the BoB group we should likely use "Brothers" to be grammerically correct.

So...an X of Brothers.

And think of the unique terms used in some...a MURDER of crows...a PRIDE of lions. This as opposed to the more mundane flocks, packs, and the like.

Something like...

A generosity of brothers.

A consideration of brothers.

A hijack of brothers.

Oh, well...more?

Party of Brothers

Club of Brothers

Society of Brothers

Battery of Brothers

Assembly of Brothers

Crew of Brothers

Formation of Brothers

Posse of Brothers

Platoon of Brothers

And finally...

A Band of Brothers

Vigilantes?

I like PD's - tweak it just a tad, to...

A Curmudgeon of Brothers.

Nice. Has a certain semi warmth to it.



I like the smolder thing too.

I've always liked:

An obstinacy of buffalo
A gang of elk (fun mental image)
A maelstrom of salamanders
and my personal favorite: A parliament of owls.



For this motley crew, I like BHs latest: a curmudgeon of brothers.

This is an interesting question, if taken seriously. I'm not sure this is a brotherhood, as we have female members that are not designated a ladies auxiliary order. I'm also not certain how orderly you need to be in order to be an order, so there's that too.
