Straight Line of the Day: What Do You Call a Group of Liberals?

Posted on December 21, 2012 12:00 pm

Works like this: I feed you Moon Nukers a straight line, and you hit me with a punch line in the comments.

TechnoChitlins [High Praise!] says:

Why Are There So Many Bizarre Names For A Collection Of Animals?

Many of the terms are conspicuously cute like a cowardice of curs or a murder of crows. Others sound cuter than they are meant to be; a school of fish is a corruption of shoal of fish, which is an appropriate image. Some others: A hover of trout, a husk of hares, a labor of moles, an unkindness of ravens, a murmuration of starlings, a knot of toads, a gang of elk, a fall of woodcocks, a rafter of turkeys, a kindle of kittens, a pitying of woodcocks, a crash of rhinos, a congregation of plovers, and a bevy of roebucks.

What do you call a group of liberals?

    There are only three names for groups of anything.

    Medium Group = Swarm. Ex. Get out of the way of that swarm of moose.
    Large Group = Rampaging Horde. Ex. I ate a rampaging horde of bacon for breakfast.

    Liberals being neither man nor beast are given a different set of names for groups.

    Small group of liberals is called a nuisance.
    A medium sized group of liberals is called a migraine.
    A large group of liberals is called a government.
