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!
