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?

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?

Being an ex military guy and a bit of a nostalgic, I offer the following;

Company of Brothers

Squadron of Brothers

Team of Brothers

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

Pack of Brothers

And finally...

A Band of Brothers

A club? Not sure that we are raucous enough for a gang.

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.
