Collective nouns

In another post the OP was talking about the Flocking of Jeeps. I don't think that is correct. Do Jeeps flock. We need a collective noun to describe a group of Jeeps. So you know what I am describing, a collective noun is a word used to define a group of objects, where objects can be people, animals, inanimate things. For example, in the phrase "a pride of lions", pride is a collective noun. Other common ones are a school of fish, a pack of dogs, and a gaggle of geese. Some strange ones; a murder of crows, a skulk of foxes, and a parliament of owls.

Any ideas, bring them forth. Then we'll take a vote and establish the official Jeep collective noun.

A "wrangling" of Jeeps?

You tell me, lets see what we come up with.

So be it, by a vote of 3 to 0 (I can't vote) it's decided.

A group of Jeeps shall be known as a "Wrangling of Jeeps".
