A Barrel of Monkeys…

I recently heard a radio talk-show host use the phrase “More fun than a Barrel of Monkeys” and it got me thinking… just what other animal references are out there?

There are a few lists of animal congregations that most of us are quite familiar with, such as – a pride of lions, a swarm of bees, a gaggle of geese.  However, today I wanted to introduce you to a few *new to me* phrases that are quite visual or literal, and definitely entertaining:

Intrusion of Cockroaches

Flamboyance of Flamingos

Cloud of Grasshoppers

Cackle of Hyenas

Prickle of Porcupines

Crash of Rhinos

…and my favorite…a Parliament of Owls!

I hope this helped you have a lil’ bit of Fun on Friday!
