    I think that children actually only travel in gaggles. That is the official word for a group of children, like a school of fish, a pride of lions, or a stink of lawyers.

    Memphis has them on their rigs for the people who are driving phone booths and/or have their heads so far up their [CENSORED] that they can't see the big red trucks in the same lane fighting a fire or attending to a wreck scene.

    Count the cops at the next crime scene.
    The correct term for a number of cops is a dozen.You were close but we were looking for " a dozen cops".
